Elder Travel Assistance

A vision of inclusion

As Summit organizers, we understand that not everyone can make their way to Kotzebue without assistance, and value access to make it the inclusive convening we envision. 

 

With our volunteer efforts, we have been able to fundraise for 5 Elder Travel Scholarships (airfare and 3 nights of accommodation). If you are an Elder or registering for an Elder, please denote Elder status. 

 

Attendees will otherwise be expected to make their own way, such as for other large events like Kivgiq or ICC, though efforts are underway to identify community housing (sleeping bags and cots) in common areas. 

 

If you would like to contribute airfare, accommodations, or other resources, or would like to assist the Funding Team, email kipigniutit@gmail.org
