Alaska Native Brotherhood and Alaska Native Sisterhood Grand Camp signed a new MOU with the USDA Forest Service on February 19th 2020. The agreement, No. 202001, replaces a former agreement, No. 13-MU-11100500-033, which expired December 1, 2018. This MOU also has in it the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (Commodities).
The signed MOU and information on the Commodities Program may be read/downloaded from the Document Library.
Grand Camp will be looking
into more ways of connecting
its website to Social Media.
The goal is to streamline news
and events pertaining to Grand Camp and communicating in
more ways with local camps.
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
On Wednesday, July 22nd, the Alaska Native Brotherhood (ANB) held an Executive Committee meeting, via phone conference. Attached are the Minutes from the meeting, as well as the ANB Grand President Report with her recommendations. For Transparency here is a link to the audio recording of the meeting. https://hidrive.ionos.com/lnk/v4IyPihy
The ANB Executive Committee discussed in detail the results of the survey that went out that pertained to hosting a 2020 Convention. We all have concluded that having an in-person convention is out of the question. The risk to our membership and Elders is too high.
In a close vote on a motion to cancel the convention for 2020, it was decided that we will NOT cancel the convention. Instead at this time, we will look into the possibility of hosting a virtual or digital/online convention. We feel it is important to address at least resolutions, 2021 budget, and the possible election of Officers.
We understand that some communities have internet accessibility challenges and we will be exploring ways to remove barriers as much as possible, on a platform that will be as equitable and as user friendly as possible. Additionally, we will explore training opportunities if needed/wanted.
We would like to let you know that this is a work in progress with a short timeframe to make this happen. We are aware, based on what technology is available or not available, that we may need to pivot again and the health and well-being of all members will continue to be our top priority.
Again, we would like to inform you there will not be a traditional convention, instead, we are exploring the possibility of an online/virtual/digital convention.
We will keep you up to date as more information becomes available.
In Brotherhood and Sisterhood,
James A Llanos Jr
Alaska Native Brotherhood
Grand Camp Secretary
A resolution was presented to the State Legislation Bill HJR 9: Requesting the United States Secretary of the Treasury to mint not less than 5,000,000 $1 coins honoring Elezabeth Peratrovich under the Native American $1 Coin Act.
This Bill passed and has been sent to the Governor for signing.
Available is the coin packaged in 25-coin rolls, 100-coin bags, and 250-coin boxes, which goes on sale February 12, 2020 (just in time for Elizabeth Peratrovich Day!). Here is a link to the catalog page, which also features one of the first images of the coin as minted! https://catalog.usmint.gov/native-american-1-coin-2020-rolls-bags-and-boxes-MASTER_NA2020RBB.html
Grand Camp recommends all camps purchase at least one of the packages/options the day it becomes available.
