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).
