The Department of the Interior says Anthony Christianson of Hydaburg and Charles Brower of Barrow have been appointed to represent subsistence users.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar made the appointments with the concurrence of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
Christianson is mayor of Hydaburg and natural resources director for Hydaburg Cooperative Association, a federally recognized tribe.
Brower is special assistant to the vice president of Barrow's village corporation, Ukpeagvik Inupiat Corp.
He is the former wildlife department director for the North Slope Borough.
The board oversees the Federal Subsistence Management Program.
The program provides rural Alaskans with opportunities for a subsistence way of life on federal public lands with an eye toward maintaining healthy fish and wildlife populations.
