Central Council Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska is hosting an Indian taco fundraiser from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday at Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall. The fundraiser will benefit Mary (Daaljíni) Folletti, who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. According to Tlingit and Haida, she is seeking treatment that will be a financial burden for herself and her family, and the tribe is doing its best to support her in her fight against cancer.

Tacos are by donation, with $10 suggested for a beef taco, $3 for fry bread, and $1 for bottled water.

Delivery is available if you pre-order five or more tacos to the same location.

To pre-order, call Serena Hinchman at 463-7142.
