GWICH’IN GATHERING 2016 ARCTIC VILLAGE, ALSAKA

ROBBY ROMERO STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE GWICH’IN NATION

Since 1988, the people of the Gwich’in Nation have spoken with a unified voice to protect the Sacred Place Where Life Begins Izhik Gwat’san Gwandaii Goodlit the birthplace and nursery grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd, the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil exploration and development.

In this era of record global warming and climate change, this year is an urgent time in the fight for permanent protection of the sacred birthplace of the caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We will celebrate and we give thanks to President Obama for sending the first-ever proposed Arctic Refuge Wilderness recommendation to Congress.

All Nations and friends of the Gwich’in are welcome.  This will be a time to meet new people and visit with friends and relatives, enjoy traditional foods, music, dance, and games, and keep the Sacred Fire Burning.
