Native Village of Eklutna (NVE) invites you to the online premiere of “Eklutna: Restoring a River”. The short film, by Alaskanist Stories, tells the history of the river, the recent dam removal, and highlights the exciting opportunity to restore a wild salmon fishery.

Today, the Eklutna riverbed is largely dry. There’s a considerable effort underway to revive the river and restore salmon in historical numbers to a river of great cultural significance to the Native Village of Eklutna, and for the enjoyment of southcentral Alaska residents.

This virtual event will be hosted on the Zoom video conference. The event begin at 7:30 pm
