Salmon People: Indigenous Resistance and Resilience in Alaska

  • Jun 30, 2021

Join us at 5pm Pacific on Wednesday, June 30th for the first virtual event on the #RedRoadtoDC. Be sure to RSVP via zoom at this link to join us online for this special event. Salmon People: Indigenous Resistance and Resilience in Alaska: “Since time immemorial, the salmon have been sacred to the identities, traditions, and cultural lifeways of Alaska Native peoples. Today, both the salmon and the people that steward them are imperiled by the toxic effects of mineral extraction and industrial logging, and impacted communities are fighting back. This virtual journey event will bring together Native elders, grassroots organizers, and fishers who are mobilizing against the proposed Pebble Mine at Bristol Bay, the open-pit Donlin Gold Mine in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, and clearcutting in the Tongass Rainforest, the largest national forest in the US. Speakers will include Joel Jackson (Organized Village of Kake), Alannah Hurley (United Tribes of Bristol Bay), Ruth Miller (Native Movement), and Gloria Simeon (Mother Kuskokwim River and No Donlin Gold).Join us here.
