By Alannah Hurley

On behalf of the United Tribes of Bristol Bay (UTBB), I would like to thank you for standing in unity with the people of Bristol Bay. The letter from your tribe urging the EPA to finalize protections for our watershed and Yup’ik, Dena’ina, and Alutiiq way of life is a great help to our efforts. Like many in your region, our tribal members still live a traditional way of life in balance with our pristine lands and waters. The health of our watershed is directly connected to the health and well-being of our people and the continuation of our cultures, we thank you again for helping us work to protect this connection for future generations.
Our unity strengthens our ability to protect all our indigenous ways of life for future generations across Alaska Native’s different tribes and peoples. Your commitment to helping us protect our homeland is greatly appreciated as we continue this fight for everything we hold sacred.
Once again, thank you very much for your support of the people of Bristol Bay. We look forward to working with you in the future and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, comments.
Quyana & Chin’an (thank you),
