Announcing Winter 2023 Subsistence Programs

ONC’s Natural Resources Department is beginning our Winter Subsistence Distribution Program. We are looking for community members who are Elders, disabled, or widowed and in need of subsistence foods this winter. We can provide whitefish, ptarmigan, and pike.

ONC is also organizing the Winter Proxy Hunt Program open to Elders, disabled individuals, or widows in need of moose for the winter/spring. Individuals must be 65+, 70% disabled, legally blind, or widowed. Proxy hunters do not need to be ONC tribal members and will receive a $200 Crowley’s gas card when proxy paperwork is filed with the Department of Fish and Game.

To be added to the list of recipients for either program or to ask questions, fill out the google form or contact Nia Long at 907-545-2005 or
