Daak Ḵusteeyí

Join us for the Indigenous Aquaculture Alaska Gathering!

Daak Ḵusteeyí is a knowledge sharing event on the shores of Sheet’ká, the traditional territory of Sheet’ká Kwáan, to share teachings about caretaking the tidelands and relationships that are central to Indigenous aquaculture and food sovereignty. The phrase consists of two Lingít words, daak (meaning seaward), and ḵusteeyí (meaning our way of life).This is a keystone event of the Cross-Pacific Indigenous Aquaculture Collaborative Network, and it follows previous gatherings honoring place-based connections in Hawai’i, Palau, Washington, and British Columbia.

Here is some information that will help guide you as you prepare for the event in Sitka!
