CIRI shareholders from the Kenai Peninsula gathered at Kenai Middle School on October 12 to participate in the Fall Friendship Potlatch. Traditional foods, such as salmon peroke and moose stew were served.
Shareholders participated in an Athabascan cloth ceremony and enjoyed a performance from the Kenaitze Indian Tribe’s Jabila’ina Dance Group.
The mission of CIRI is to promote the economic and social well-being and Alaska Native heritage of our Shareholders, now and into the future, through prudent stewardship of the company’s resources, while furthering self-sufficiency among CIRI Shareholders and their families.
