Protecting the vital and sacred transboundary rivers that sustain our communities and culture

Greyscale Landscape

Southeast Alaska Indigenous Transboundary Commission (SEITC) is a consortium of 15 Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Nations defending the transboundary rivers from rapidly expanding mining boom occurring in the Canadian headwaters. 

Established in 2014, SEITC has authority derived from Tribal governments, and each member Tribe has a formally designated representative. 

The consortium is calling on the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia to work jointly with U.S Tribes and consider the transboundary impacts of mining operations. 

SEITC is currently leading a significant human rights initiative that aims to halt any further harm to the watersheds.

In 2019, SEITC was successful in placing the Stikine as one of America's top ten most endangered rivers – a call on the International Joint Commission of the U.S. and Canada to stop mining projects from devastating the river, its salmon, and an entire way of life.
