May 10th and 11th, 2017, the Organized Village of Kasaan (Alaska) will host its seventh Prince of Wales Island-Wide Mining Symposium. This two-day event will be held at the Totem Trail Café in Kasaan, Alaska. The Mining Symposium will consist of sessions with presentations by mining representatives, governing agencies, interested groups, and residents of Prince of Wales Island. These sessions will include current mining projects and mining issues that may be of concern to the people of Prince of Wales Island and Southeast Alaska.
The symposium provides a unique forum for information exchange and issue discussion among stakeholders, landowners, and the indigenous people of Southeast Alaska. Participants will include Tribes, mining companies, power entities, regulatory entities, government officials, educational institutions, and many other concerned community members. Lunch will be included in the Symposium fee for each day along with coffee, water, and light snacks. Following the discussion on May 10th, there will be a dinner and a performance by a local Native dance group.
