Eleven of Southeast Alaska’s 19 federally recognized Tribes met in Craig, Prince of Wales at the Craig Tribal House in late March to join together in protecting their way of life from the impacts of transboundary mining projects underway in the Canadian headwaters of Alaska’s major rivers. The Tribal summit was sponsored by the Organized Village of Kasaan and resulted in a new Unified Tribal Transboundary Mining Workgroup.
