Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Commission is an advisory group. Federal law and regulation provide the opportunity for continued subsistence uses, including hunting, within the Cape Krusenstern National Monument. The Subsistence Resource Commission for Cape Krusenstern National Monument is a forum that promotes effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistence uses and related cultural resources. The Commission consults with every appropriate local advisory committee and regional council for comment and input on draft hunting plan recommendations. In addition to the advisory committee and regional council consultation process directed by P.L. 96-847 (the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act), the Commission is required to hold public meetings in all areas affected by the subsistence hunting program. The charter allows the Commission to meet as often as circumstances require.
How is membership balanced?*Membership, as prescribed by the Commission's enabling legislation, consists of nine members as follows: (a) three members appointed by the Secretary of the Interior; (b) three members appointed by the Governor of Alaska; and (c) three members appointed by the regional council, as established by the Secretary or the State pursuant to section 805 of P.L. 96-487. The members include a range of individuals having personal knowledge of the region's subsistence conditions, and having an interest in Federal subsistence management. Members broadly represent geographic, cultural, and user diversity present within the region.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The charter allows the Commission to meet as often as circumstances require. The Commission generally meets twice a year. Commission recommendations are vitally important on matters relating to the taking of wildlife within the Monument, and are the foundation for the development and review of the subsistence hunting program. During FY 2020 the Commission conducted two public meetings.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Subsistence Resource Commission for Cape Krusenstern National Monument has been established by Congress as an advisory group to devise and recommend to the Secretary of the Interior and the Governor of Alaska a program for subsistence hunting within Cape Krusenstern National Monument. The Commission's unique insight on local customary and traditional patterns of subsistence use within the Monument has been important in developing workable subsistence hunting plan recommendations. The Subsistence Resource Commission for Cape Krusenstern National Monument is a vital link between the National Park Service and the local rural residents who live within the designated National Park Service resident zone. The Commission’s recommendations help the NPS to ensure the continuation of the opportunity for local rural residents to engage in the subsistence use of resources in Cape Krusenstern National Monument. The NPS has adopted the following mission statement to guide its activities. Subsistence will be managed as a legislated use consistent with the provisions of ANILCA, the Organic Act of 1916, and NPS policy to:•protect the opportunity for qualified local rural residents to continue traditional subsistence activities;•recognize that subsistence ways of life differ from region to region and arecontinuing to evolve, and where appropriate, park management practicesmay reflect regional diversity and evolution;•promote local involvement and participation in processes associated withsubsistence management;•ensure that management practices involving the utilization of public landsadequately consider the potential for restriction of subsistence uses andimpacts upon subsistence resources;•ensure that management of park resources is consistent with the conservation of unimpaired ecosystems and natural and healthy populations of fishand wildlife, incorporating scientific data and principles with traditionalknowledge and cultural values; and•promote effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistenceuses and related cultural and social values, and park purposes and protection,between the NPS, subsistence users, the State of Alaska and the public.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open. Open meetings strengthen public confidence and provide opportunity for more public involvement and consensus among local rural residents and various user groups.
Recommendation RemarksThe Cape Krusenstern Subsistence Resource Commission met twice during fiscal year 2020. These meetings were held on 30 September – 1 October 2019 in Kotzebue, AK and 4-5 February 2020 in Kotzebue, AK. The Commission recommended that the NPS work with the Native Village of Kotzebue to take precautions with muskox at Sisualik Spit. The Commission further recommended that Joe Dallemolle submit a proposal to the Subsistence Advisory Council to fund research on wood harvest. The commission supports looking into disruption of caribou migration in Noatak National Preserve, possibly by acoustic monitoring, and would like to work with Todd Brinkman, University of Alaska Fairbanks. The commission voted to oppose the proposed allowance of caribou calf harvest and to support the proposed year-round caribou bull hunting season (WP20-43,44,45 and 46). Then at the February meeting, the Commission voted to support the proposed allowance of caribou calf harvest in order to align with the State of Alaska hunting regulations.
