What's New
The U.S. Board on Geographic Names officially changed the name of the Black River to its traditional Native American name, Draanjik River. The change has been made in the Geographic Names Information System, the nation's official geographic names repository, which is available and searchable online at http://geonames.usgs.gov.

Draanjik translates as “caches along the river.” A 1983 report on Gwich'in Athabascan place names of the Upper Yukon-Porcupine Region (Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Subsistence) refers to the Draanjik Gwich'in as “people of the Black River.”

The BLM was not able to make this name change in the Proposed RMP/Final EIS. However, in the Approved RMP/Final EIS and Record of Decsion, the BLM will refer to the Black River as the Draanjik and the Upper Black River Subunit will be renamed the Draanjik Subunit.

When completed and approved, the Eastern Interior Resource Management Plan (RMP)  will provide future direction for 6.5 million acres of public land including the White Mountains National Recreation Area, the Steese National Conservation Area, and the Fortymile area. In addition, it will cover BLM lands not currently included in an existing land use plan: the upper Black River area and scattered parcels along the highway system. 

The Eastern Interior RMP will replace three existing BLM land use plans: the White Mountains National Recreation Area RMP (1986), the Steese National Conservation Area RMP (1986), and the Fortymile Management Framework Plan (1980). These and other documents relevant to the Eastern Interior RMP may be found on the Documents & Reports Page.
