I am one of the advisors on the Native Village of Eyak Tribal Youth Council. I want to express my gratitude towards these Tribal Youth Council members. They work hard; they have been taking turns showing up to Council Meetings, they have been participating in community events, traveling to conferences and they have been having monthly meetings. Our Tribal Youth Council gained some new members this year too, it’s great that we now have nine members on the Tribal Youth Council. Tribal Youth Council has the support from the Native Village of Eyak, The Eyak Corporation and Chugach Alaska Corporation. Their recent contributions helped send 7 Tribal Youth Council members to Florida for the National Unity Conference. At the conference youth participated in workshops, listened to keynote speakers, participated in area caucus meetings and learned about other cultures. Overall, thank you everyone, for continuing to support our youth.
