…continued responsible resource extraction is essential to the future of the Northwest Arctic
Borough and its provision of public services to the region’s residents
Hughes has been in support of Ambler Road since we started meeting in 2010. Our Elder at that
time wanted jobs for our Tribal members so people will not move to the cities, to try to stop
outmigration. We've been struggling to keep our school open for years. The student count needs
to be ten kids. If we go under ten kids, our school will close. Parents with children will move.
We need year-round jobs for our Tribal members. I know the Ambler Road and Ambler Mining
District will provide that for years to come. Thank you.
My administration supports projects that provide job opportunities and hope, while protecting
what we all love about Alaska: its beauty, bountiful resources, and the people who call it home.
Projects like the Ambler Access Project help to create the tangible economic opportunities
Alaskans need and deserve, especially for neighboring communities. No one does responsible
resource development better than Alaska.
Guided by traditional knowledge of Alaska's land, water, and animals, the Subsistence Advisory
Committee is an integral voice guiding responsible development of the AAP. The committee members
hail from 9 local villages and are each knowledgeable of traditional and subsistence practices and
resources around their respective communities.
The AAP has the potential to create thousands of new jobs in Northwest Alaska. The Workforce
Development Working Group was established to create pathways to these opportunities for workers in
the Doyon and NANA regions. Learn
Guided by respect for the long history and customs of Alaska's Native People, the Tribal Liaison
Program was established in cooperation with the indigenous people of the Doyon and NANA regions
along the proposed corridor. Tribal Liaisons are members of local Tribes who provide important
insight and collaboration as part of the project's ongoing cultural management activities. Learn More
