Subject: Travel Pool Report #8 -- Kotzebue speech

President Obama, looking Arctic casual in a gray sweater and button-down shirt, spoke for about 20 minutes to the revved up crowd that filled the school gym here in Kotzebue.

Afterwards, the president ventured into the crowd and spent several minutes shaking hands.

The pool is now holding in the gym.

The White House sends along info about the crowd count and the woman who introduced Obama:

Crowd Count 1065
Chief Sean Ralston
Kotzebue Fire Chief

Millie Hawley is the President of the Kivalina Tribal Council, a village in the Northwest Arctic Borough on the front lines of climate change. Millie has been an active tribal leader in the region for decades.
