Yakutat's ANCSA village corporation, Yak-Tat Kwaan Inc. has stated their intention to log 850 acres on Khantaak Island in Yakutat, Alaska. We are outraged Yakutat Tlingit Tribe members, Yak-Tat Kwaan Inc. shareholders, Yakutat residents and others who oppose logging on our islands. Yakutat islands serve as habitat for native species, offer critical protection from Gulf of Alaska storms, and tsunamis. Equally important to the people is the islands' historic places, sacred sites, and subsistence/food sovereighty. We gather food, medicine and materials for our traditional culture on the islands. THIS EFFORT TO LOG KHANTAAK WILL CHANGE OUR WAY OF LIFE FOREVER. IT CANNOT STAND.
UPDATE: Please let us know in the comments if you are a shareholder/tribal member
