Where the Rivers Meet the Sky

A Collaborative Approach to Participatory Development

by Kennedy, Timothy



The SKYRIVER process has received a great deal of recognition for its innovative use of video and film tools to enhance and strengthen citizen participation in the decision-making processes of government. The collaborative process of economic and social development, facilitated within and among Native Alaskan villages, led to direct communication between the villages and government officials and, ultimately, to positive social change. This book provides a detailed review of how the SKYRIVER process evolved and the many lessons learned from its evolution.

...the text is excellent, fascinating and also a potential for further positive change in Village Alaska.

—Rosita Worl, President of SEALASKA Heritage Center
