Working as a conduit between local, state, and federal environmental agencies, it is the mission of the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska Environmental Office to develop governance mechanisms, and to strengthen, serve, and represent the Tribal Members' voices in matters related to the land, sea, natural, and cultural resources traditionally valued by the Unangan people.
