AFN postpones subsistence regulatory meeting

The Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) has indefinitely postponed a Subsistence Convention it had hoped to host this week. The full-delegate gathering planned to address pressures on subsistence and rural preference through confusing regulatory processes by the State and the Federal Subsistence Board. But the Subsistence Convention is now on hold until the end of this year, possibly early 2009.
