community meeting to discuss climate impacts and our tribal vulnerability assessment project
Tuesday, March 07 2023, 6 p.m.

Location: Qawalangin Tribe Office

On Tuesday, March 7 at 6PM, Qawalangin Resilience will be hosting a community meeting to discuss climate impacts and our tribal vulnerability assessment project. In person and zoom participation options available. We will have Malinda Chase joining us via Zoom, to break down the meanings and purposes of vulnerability assessments, and conduct activities to discuss climate impacts in Unalaska.

This meeting will be a community engagement effort to:

Introduce the Qawalangin Vulnerability Assessment project to the people
Create space for participants to discuss and share climate impacts experienced in Unalaska
Provide information on opportunity to be involved by joining our (PAID) 6-member guustilix̂ committee

One of our main goals in this meeting is to introduce this project to the community in a way that overcomes the barriers that come with technical language use (Ex: “Vulnerability Assessment,” -> what does this really mean for us? Why should we care? And why you don’t need to be a ‘scientist’ to contribute). This project is for the people of Unalaska. It is to protect Qaqamiiĝux (subsistence) and our relations to the land.

Join us on Tuesday to learn more about one of the things the Tribe is doing to protect our home- and bring any climate-impact concerns that you may want to share with the group! It is very important to us that these projects are led by the voices of the people that they are meant to serve. We would love to see our family and friends there with us on Tuesday! Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Feel free to share and forward this information- youth also encouraged to attend! For those who are interested in joining via zoom rather than in-person at the tribal office, a link to the meeting will be sent out on Monday.
