Arctic Tribe Fights Oil Development in Refuge

Native American Times, Posted: Aug 17, 2008

OLD CROW, CanadaTribal leaders here have renewed their fight against proposed oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge during a gathering in July, the Native American Times reports. The tribe had voiced their opposition nearly 20 years ago and have been forced to rally again in the face of 24 bills currently in the U.S. House and Senate that propose drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Tribal steering committee member Sarah James said the drilling would only save Americans a few pennies at the pump ten years from now, but the damage to the arctic ecosystem would be severe, disrupting caribou runs that the tribe depends on to sustain their way of life.
