ANWR : the Kaktovik position

....So, like it or not, and seldom if ever informed of any of these federal actions, our homeland, the country that defines us as a Native American people, has become oil country, and we are now a part of it. We can choose to ignore this reality or we can choose to face it and do whatever we can to survive it."...

..."We have carefully studied and taken a position on petroleum development. We have reached a consensus that we have held now for over two decades."...

...."The details of this position are stated in much greater detail in what we call the Kaktovik Papers, a set of documents entitled:
