Alex Charles Aviugana

This FJMC web site is dedicated to the memory of Alexander (Alex) Charles Aviugana who passed away on May 8, 1994.

Alex was a founding member of the Fisheries Joint Management Committee. While he held many positions with Inuvialuit organizations (including directorships with the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, the Inuvialuit Game Council, the Inuvialuit Development Corporation, the Inuvialuit Land Administration, the Inuvik Community Corporation and the Inuvik Hunters and Trappers Committee), Alex always found time for the business of the FJMC. His life experience as a fisherman and a hunter of beluga whales enabled him to bring to our meeting table an understanding of the resource that few could match.

In many ways Alex shaped the FJMC. His insistence on community-based monitoring and assessment programs set the Committee on a path where the HTC’s became partners in the delivery of projects such as the Beluga Monitoring Program. He persuaded members of the importance of traditional knowledge and helped us to incorporate that wisdom into management practices. He recognized the need for training beneficiaries in the science of resource management and ensured that where possible FJMC projects contained a training component so that, in the long term, all work could be done locally. He identified the need for descriptive materials about the Inuvialuit Final Agreement and the co-management process that could be used in school programs and prodded the Committee to contribute as best it could in that area. In short, Alex served as both a catalyst and a guide for the FJMC, helping us to see old issues in a new light, and channeling our enthusiasms in productive directions, directions that were consistent with the themes of the IFA.

As you browse through this website, you will no doubt recognize other examples of Alex’s influence on the FJMC and its’ programs. We are sure that you will recognize, as we do, that while we still mourn the loss of a friend and colleague, we can be proud of his achievements and the legacy he left for us all.
