O.E.C., High Latitude Range Management
The high latitude range management occupational endorsement program combines academic and Indigenous knowledge at the local, national and international levels to offer courses that help prepare students for entry-level jobs in the field of natural resources and livestock production, including reindeer husbandry. The program operates in cooperation with regional communities and organizations with involvement from statewide industry representatives and educators as part of the program's commitment to responding to the unique needs of rural Alaska communities, particularly with respect to local resources. The Sámi Education Institute of Finland manages the international BEBO organization, which promotes the languages and cultures of reindeer herding peoples in the Arctic and extends cooperation specifically to the HLRM program.
