Alaska Native Peoples of Nome

Tribal Resources


The office of Tribal Resources is funded primarily by an Indian General Assistance Program (IGAP) grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. The primary purpose of this office is to educate tribal members about environmental issues relating to Nome, the Bering Straits region, the State of Alaska, and nationally.  Additionally, staff study water quality in area streams that are important to Tribal members.  The office also provides assistance to Tribal members and other organizations involved in recycling and backhaul activities which serve to make our environment healthier. 

The office represents NEC at meetings regarding many environmental topics including: regional subsistence fish and wildlife management, recycling and pollution, climate change, Arctic shipping and development, migratory bird management, invasive species, and air & water quality.

Another purpose of the office is to educate members to what they can do to help in contributing to making our community more environmentally safe.  


NEC Tribal Resources and UAF-ACCAP are proud to present the Nome Tribal Climate Adaptation Plan (NTCAP) for the four Nome Based Tribes!
