>Local Knowledge Instrumental to Sucess


Jo-Ann Grimaldi, a member of the Fairbanks Flotilla and an Athabascan Indian born in Galena, has been instrumental in gathering information and making vital contacts with each village involved in the Yukon Coastie project. Ensuring we would have a smooth voyage, Jo-Ann spent countless hours informing each of the villages about the details of our visit and providing the team with crucial local knowledge. On Friday night, Jo-Ann led a discussion concerning protocol for visitors on the Yukon.
