Gwich'in Steering Committee 25th Anniversary Celebration Aug.24-25, 2013


Diilak Naii!  Greetings Dear Friends!
Please join us for our
25th Anniversary Celebration
August 24th & 25th
Arctic Village, Alaska

gwichin_final_V3 3We at the Gwich'in Steering Committee cordially invite you to come celebrate 25 Years of Protecting Gwich'in Way of Life.  That's 25 Years of educating the world about why protecting the Porcupine Caribou Herd's calving and nursing grounds on the Coastal Plain or The Sacred Place Where Life Begins "Iizhik Gwats'an Gwandaii Goodlit" of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a human rights issue to the Gwich'in Nation.

Many community members and many friends and supporters have continuously worked hard on this effort.  While the threat of development of the Coastal Plain of the Refuge remains real, we continue to live our Way of Life thanks to so many!  Thanks to all of you, we have much to celebrate - mahsi' choo!

As part of our build up to the event we are launching an online fundraising drive to help support the events related to the 25th Anniversary Celebration and our overall work.  We work year round at making sure our voice is heard in the debate over the Arctic Refuge and providing outreach to our communities.  We wouldn't be able to do this without your help!
Mahsi' choo for all your support!  If you want to take immediate action to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge it is always good to write your Senators and Representatives reminding them of the value of this iconic place - you can find more info about the Refuge and our communities on our website
