The repatriation plan to return Galena flood evacuees to Galena is underway.
Tanana Chiefs Conference, TCC, is coordinating the effort to return Galena evacuees.
The plan has been developed in coordination with Louden Tribal Council and the City of Galena.
It has been determined that the first priority is to bring in Galena residents who are ready to work on flood response.
Many of them are also head of households.
Tuesday, June 11th, 50 of these workers will be returning to Galena.
The next group of people to return will be determined later in the week.
TCC’s recommendation is to keep elders and children from returning until safety concerns have improved.
