National Seaweed Hub Webinar Series: Indigenous Seaweed Cultivation in Alaskan Waters

Tuesday January 23, 2024
12:00 – 1:00 pm AKST | 4:00 – 5:00 pm EST

Join the National Seaweed Hub for a presentation and Q&A with Keolani Booth, Tribal Councilman, Metlakatle Indian Community, on Indigenous Seaweed Cultivation in Alaskan Waters.

Keolani is a Tribal Councilman at the Metlakatla Indian Community (MIC) as well as an Alaskan Mariculture Liaison through the Alaska Mariculture Cluster. Located on the Annette Islands, MIC is the only Indian Reserve in the state of Alaska. Keolani has been pro-active in representing Metlakatla in climate and mariculture initiatives, which he hopes will create jobs in ocean farming for Metlakatla and its people, who are deeply connected to the water through culture and tradition. Keolani is also active in energy, broadband, and infrastructure initiatives, which he hopes will build a vibrant, sustainable future for the people of Metlakatla.

This webinar is hosted by New Hampshire Sea Grant and New York Sea Grant as part of the National Seaweed Hub initiative.
