Excerpt from the NVN Constitution and By Laws describing the process for filling Council vacancies:
Section 7. Vacancies:
In the event that any elective Tribal Council seat becomes vacant between elections, the Tribal Council President, after first determining if the person consents to serve, shall recommend a person who meets the requirements of a Candidate to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the term. Such person shall assume office upon approval of the appointment by a majority of the members of the Tribal Council. If a majority of the members do not consent to the appointment, the Tribal Council may choose, by a majority vote, to either direct the President to select another candidate or approve a candidate nominated by a member.
If a Tribal Council member fails to attend three (3) consecutive regular meetings of the Tribal Council, without a written excuse accepted by a majority vote of the Tribal Council, that Tribal Council member’s seat will be declared vacant and the vacancy shall be filled in accordance with this section.

Audrey & Jayce perform the first dance song composed for Napaimute in many, many years at the 2018 NVN Annual Meeting. The song is about moose hunting with your dad on the Alukaq River.
Despite the earthquake, hundreds of after shocks, and warm stormy weather attendance at the 2018 NVN Annual Meeting was good.
Voter turn out was especially good this year with ballots being accepted by mail, email or in-person at the meeting.
Here are the results of the election for Seat A on the Napaimute Traditional Council:
Thank you to everyone that voted and came out to the meeting!
L-R: Patrick Rose (NIT), Joey Davis, Nickolai Savage, Stanley Morgan, Isaac Evan (in the grader)
