Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council

Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council

The Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council is an indigenous organization made up of 70 First Nations and tribes dedicated to protecting and preserving the Yukon River Watershed. YRITWC provided a solar photovoltaic array and wind turbine to the CCHRC prototype house in Anaktuvuk Pass.

Sustainable Northern Communities Monitoring

The Sustainable Northern Communities program aims to develop energy efficient, affordable, healthy housing that fits the climate and culture of Alaska communities. SNC brings together local residents, tribal governments, state and federal agencies, housing authorities, and other partners. CCHRC monitors the prototype homes to troubleshoot and improve designs.

Anaktuvuk Pass Prototype Home

CCHRC worked with the community of Anaktuvuk Pass in 2009 to design and construct an affordable, energy efficient, healthy home that incorporated indigenous elements like earth-berming and a sod roof. The design drives down construction and energy costs and fits the local climate and culture.
