Subject: Chukchi Sea Drilling Hearings This Week - Spread the Word and Attend!

The Inupiat people have lived along the coasts of the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas for thousands of years.

Yet, melting sea ice, changing weather patterns and the push to drill for oil offshore may be putting our way of life at risk.

The Shell Oil Company wants to drill in the Beaufort and Chukchi
Seas, and the government is holding public hearings this week to hear
from us, the Inupiat people.

Hearings are scheduled in Point Hope, Point Lay, Wainwright, and
Barrow. Our voices must be heard.

All of the following meetings begin at 7pm.

- Tuesday, November 2 at the Community Center in Point Hope

- Wednesday at the Point Lay Community Center in Point Lay

- Thursday at the Robert James Community Center in Wainwright

- AND Friday November 5th, at the Inupiat Heritage Center in Barrow.

All of the meetings begin at 7pm.

Our voices must be heard.

PS - last night only one member of the public attended the hearing in
Kotzebue. Don't let this happen in the other villages. It only takes a
few minutes to speak your mind. You CAN make a difference.


Best Regards,
