Some of the folks were traveling between 10 villages on snowmachines and some were out trying to get 11 food for the table and some were just, I guess, being out 12 there when they lost their lives due to our harsh 13 environment up here. So let's take a little moment of 14 silence for all those people we have lost.

    1 REPORTER: Grace, your mike. 2 3 CHAIRMAN CROSS: I guess I'm going to be 4 the one forgetting to do this. But anyway, I really do 5 appreciate the State's presence here. For awhile I had 6 some worries, but thank you for being here. We really do 7 appreciate the State's input during our meetings because 8 it's vital for us to make decisions because you do have all 9 the statistics and you do have very good comments whenever 10 we're trying to make decisions in the proposals. Thank you 11 for being here. 12 13 And we'll to the review and adoption of the 14 agenda. I'd like to make one change on the agenda. We

    15 have a couple of people that are going to be leaving 16 temporarily, they'll be back. But I'd like to move old 17 business down and the Chair's report down and put number C 18 up right under village reports, if that's okay? So we'll 19 have Council reports, wildlife proposals for Council review 20 and recommendation to the Federal Subsistence Board, and 21 then we'll go to the Chair's report and then new business. 22 23 MR.

    29 MR. OKLEASIK: I got a meeting at 10:00. 30 31 CHAIRMAN CROSS: So if there is no 32 objections then we can move them, so they can start 33 beginning to hear the proposals. Any objections to that? 34 35 MR. MENDENHALL: Do we still have a quorum 36 after they're gone? 37 38 MS. WILKINSON: Yes, we do. 39 40 CHAIRMAN CROSS: Yes, we do. They'll be 41 back. 42

    43 MR. MENDENHALL: Okay. 44 45 CHAIRMAN CROSS: So we'll have them by 46 probably -- you'll probably be back by the afternoon, yeah? 47 48 MR. OKLEASIK: (Nods affirmatively) 49 50 CHAIRMAN CROSS: And Leonard will be back
