Title

Alaskan Requests for Emergency Hunts

Description

An article from Alaska Public Media on requests from various Alaskan communities, tribal organizations, and individuals to the Federal Office of Subsistence Management that they be allowed to hunt this spring to make up food shortages caused by the Covid-19 crisis. The article focuses on the Village of Kake, about 150 miles South of Juneau, which has asked for dispensation to hunt following meat and dairy shortages, supplies usually brought to the community by weekly barges from the port of Seattle. Their request focuses specifically about the village’s anxiety to provide a healthy and dependable food supply to elders and children during the crisis.
