Modeling Emergent Complexity on the North Pacific
In this chapter, I develop a model of the processes expected to generate systemic change in the lifestyles of Kodiak hunter-gatherers, drawing from the insights, assumptions, and biases of evolutionary ecology and related theoretical frameworks. This model illustrates how Kodiak social, technological, and economic life may have moved from its initial (or at least early Ocean Bay period) character to the more complex organization observed in ethnographic contexts.
