Thank you for helping these folks out! Unless you've lived out in the bush, you can only imagine what these people go through. I had to leave my bush job as I went broke trying to make a living; and that was before these crazy times set in!!!

What are the native corporations doing to help the villages of their shareholders?

Anchorage services are financed by the property owners taxation, municipality further taxes drivers with IM fees. What village government taxes and helps the residents? Canadian villages are larger to be able to provide services. When villages have moved from traditional life to modern more changes need to be made in how they are managed. The governor provided record PFD plus energy rebate money for each PFD this year which would have provided for families all across the state including villages. Surely families would have pooled their PFD plus energy rebates to pay costs through the winter.

From what I hear people flock here in the summer time when its warm and sunny but leave before Fall.
Leaving the Locals to fight the Winter alone.
Is there no reason to live there all Winter?
No jobs, no food, no fun? Why do they stay?
