Sea ice has been much less extensive in recent years, impacting animals like the polar bear and the native cultures that coexist with the animals.
The Gwich'in people are concerned in particular about protecting caribou, threatened by climate change and oil exploration.
Southern Oregonian Dennis Specht recently spent time among the Gwich'in, he and Sarah James of the Gwich'in Steering Committee are working to convince members of Congress to act.
