Native America Calling: Protecting the Tongass National Forest, ‘America’s Amazon’
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The Trump administration is moving to lift environmental protections on seven million acres in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. It would allow logging virgin forests that sprouted before first contact with European settlers.

Alaska Native tribes are fighting the U.S. Forest Service’s recommendations to remove the Clinton-era “roadless designation” paving the way for roads, logging and other development. The tribes say it poses a serious threat to subsistence hunting, fishing and foraging in the nation’s largest national forest.
