Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge!
The Gwich’in people are a tribe in the northern part of Alaska and Canada, the Gwich’in people have relied on the Porcupine Caribou Herd for thousands of years, for food, cultural and spiritual needs. The Porcupine Caribou Herd migrates to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge-Coastal Plain every year where they will give birth. The Coastal Plain is sacred to the Gwich’in, it has been passed down from generation to generation that we must protect the special place for future generations, so that all the animals that live and migrate to this area will always be protected. This area is known to the Gwich’in as “Iizhik Gwats’an Gwandaii Goodlit” (The Sacred Place Where Life Begins).
Will you stand with us to permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge-Coastal Plain, the Porcupine Caribou Herd and the Gwich’in Way of life. Mashii’ choo!
