The Alaska Tribal Wildlife Co-Management Proposal
Ahtna, Inc., in conjunction with Chitina Native Corporation and the 8 federally recognized tribes of the Ahtna region, is proposing a Federal-State-Tribal co-management structure that will help maintain the Ahtna people's customary and traditional hunting practices on Ahtna lands.
The goal of the co-management structure is to unify wildlife management throughout Ahtna's traditional territory and improve the current dual federal-state subsistence wildlife management system, which has proven to be ineffective, by replacing it with Ahtna's proposed co-management structure.
Below is a video detailing the co-management proposal:
