  The Alaska Nanuuq Commission (ANC) was formed
in 1994 to represent the villages in North and
Northwest Alaska on matters concerning the
conservation and sustainable subsistence use of
polar bear.  The tribal council of each member village
has passed a resolution to become a member and to
authorize the ANC to represent them on matters
concerning polar bear at regional and international
levels.
