Welcome to the Indigenous Observation Network

The Indigenous Observation Network (ION) is the largest international, Indigenous initiative combining Indigenous Knowledge and western science to research, sustain and protect the Yukon River Watershed, its resources and cultures. ION is a network of communities along the Yukon River and its tributaries who conduct research and monitoring that is applicable at the community, watershed, circumpolar and global scales; an amazing feat in the world of science.
