March 22, 2019

The Gwich’in Steering Committee Board of Directors would like to cordially invite you to the upcoming summit scheduled for the week of June 10th in Gwichyaa Zhee (Fort Yukon) Alaska.This is a time where we need the Gwich’in Nation Chiefs, leaders and allies to come together and discuss the threat to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge-Coastal Plain; the Porcupine caribou herd and the Gwich’in way of life.

Alaska is experiencing the debilitating effects from global warming twice as fast as the rest of the nation, this threatens our food security and our livelihood as Gwich’in people. We invite you to join us to discuss climate change in our homelands and the direct threat it has to our food security. We must share our experiences and what is happening within our communities to come together as one to have a strong voice at the table.
