Herring Water Protectors

Herring are sacred; all our relations celebrate and share in the bounty they bring to Lingít Aaní (Tlingit Country) and beyond. We are an Indigenous-led grassroots collective in Sheet’ká Kwáan (Sitka, Alaska) that organizes to protect the herring that sustain us all. We stand for Tribal Sovereignty and in support of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska’s decades-long fight for conservative management of the herring. From sharing harvests to standing in protest, to hosting elders, crafting gifts, or mobilizing public testimony, Herring Protectors are anyone and everyone who advocates for the herring.
