Koahnic Broadcast Corporation produces radio special on Alaska Native people and climate change

Koahnic Broadcast Corporation has produced a special radio program, Alaska Natives and Climate Change in the Arctic, examining how climate change has been affecting Alaska Native traditions and cultures. The program is hosted by KNBA News Director Joaqlin Estus (Tlingit) and is part of Koahnic’s Arctic Series with funding from Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Anglo American, The CIRI Foundation and Rasmuson Foundation. 
The one-hour program looks at issues ranging from the effects of disappearing sea ice and melting permafrost on subsistence to the opportunities that may come with new global trade routes through Alaskan waters. Stories of Alaska Native communities on the front lines of dealing with climate change are featured, such as Newtok, which has experienced severe seasonal flooding. 
Listen for Alaska Natives and Climate Change in the Arctic on KNBA 90.3 FM at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4, or listen online at www.knba.org.
