The Craig Tribal Association is in its 13th year of funding through the IGAP program. We have established a recycling program, as well as committed to providing educational outreach and materials to our community. We have completed projects in the areas of indoor air quality, outdoor air quality, traditional and customary resource protection, and traditional and customary knowledge protection, to name a few. We host the Annual Deer Celebration, as well as co-host events such as Earth Day and The Energy Cents Energy Fair.
Currently, we are working with the City of Craig to facilitate the continuation of the recycling program, as well as the other communities and Tribes on the island. Items we currently can recycle are:
-Number 1 and 2 plastics: PLEASE REMOVE THE LID, and place in the recycling trailer located at our office.
-Aluminum Cans: Please take to the conex container behind Thompson House—all proceeds go the Craig Schools.
-Printer Cartridges and Toner: Please bring to our Tribal Environmental Office, downstairs by the T&H Head Start.
-Cell Phones: Please bring to our Tribal Environmental Office, downstairs by the T&H Head Start.

We have hired a staff member to create, facilitate, and implement a water quality monitoring program on traditional and customary streams. We plan on monitoring three streams in the traditional territory over the next year to obtain baseline data that can later be used for enhancement or mitigation projects.

LOCAL AREA MANAGEMENT PLAN:
We are working on writing a local area management plan (LAMP) that will be used to limit entry of non-Prince of Wales residents ability to harvest in traditional territories. This is will ensure that our customary hunting and gathering lifestyle is preserved for generations to come. This is an extensive project that is in it’s infancy, and we are projecting a three year timeline for completion.
