Created May 25, 2017
It is with heavy hearts, we learned of the unexpected, tragic accident of Cliff (Tuffy) Adams and Ai Nakjima-Adams on  May 21, 2017. The couple was involved in a tragic boat accident on the Yukon River near Beaver village. 

Tuffy & Ai loved Alaska, they lived on the river and opened up their home for travelors to Alaska. They were known for their generosity to family, friends and strangers. 
They lived in Athabascan country, provided for many families, and brought income and jobs to the interior by showing their great culture and why it is important. They need our help. 

We would like to invite all who are willing, to donate  for the Nakjima/Adams family with the unexpected expenses of travel for Ai's family from Japan, search and rescue costs such as: gas, oil, food, and mechanical parts. If you desire, please leave a simple post with your donation. We would love to gather sweet memories from all who knew and loved dear Cliff and Ai.

Please contact Val Adams for more information 

Thank you in advance for your generosity and your kind memories. 

Sincerely,
Rochelle, Shawnen, Bryan, Jimmy & beloved grandchildren

ビーバー村住民のクリフ(通称タフィー/Tuffy)・アダムスと、愛・中島・アダムスを不慮の事故が襲ったことを知り、私たち家族はみな心が沈んでいます。5月21日(日)、アラスカ州ビーバー村近くのユーコン川で二人を巻き込むボートの事故が起こりました。

タフィーと愛は、アラスカをこよなく愛し、世界中から訪れる人たちを家に招き入れ、自分たちの生活であるアラスカネイティブの生活や文化を紹介してきました。家族や友人、たまたま訪れた人たちみなが、彼らから心のこもったおもてなしを受けてきました。

今回の悲しい事故に際して、愛のご家族に日本からビーバー村へ来てもらう為の旅費や通訳費用、そして今も続いている捜索救助活動の為の寄付を募っています。

寄付と共に短い言葉も添えて頂けると嬉しいです。沢山の人たちから愛された、クリフと愛の思い出を集めることが出来たら本当にうれしいです。

UPDATE: The search continues for Cliff and Ai Adams on the Yukon River.

The family would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to everyone that has sent their support and love in many ways. All proceeds that have been previously raised have been used to directly support the ongoing river search such as purchasing food, travel, freight costs, camp supplies, gas, oil, boat maintenance and recovery technology. The funds have also been used to bring Ai's family from Japan to pay their respects and experience firsthand the efforts happening to recover their beloved daughter Ai.

As you may know, there are no stores in the rural village of Beaver. All supplies (including gas for the boats) have been shipped and hauled in. The search efforts are now fully funded by the family through the support gathered here from all of you.

Through your continued support, the family remains hopeful to bring Cliff and Ai Adams home. If there is any news or updates on the search, the children of Cliff will be sure to share this directly with everyone.

Rochelle, Shawnen, Bryan, Jimmy and the rest of the family send their sincerest and heartfelt thanks for all of your continued support and love.

I, Fatima, am in the process of releasing funds to Rochelle Adams, Cliff & Ai's daughter/step-daughter. She will be the direct contact organizing the resources with family and friends help. Rochelle is currently in Beaver helping with the search and rescue.

The GoFundMe account will still continue to accept donations, this will just allow money to start flowing for the recovery effort.
