Alaska History
By Cecelia Johnson


January 23, 2009

As I read about Alaska history regarding Territorial days and Statehood I appreciate the individuals before us who worked tirelessly on "equality" for all. Just as we work today for "justice and equality." Some names in history: Frank Peratrovich, Frank Johnson, Fred Grant, Bob Bartlett, Felix Cohen, "William Paul", James Curry, to name a few.

Saying that, I appreciate Don Hoff's letters as he gives us food for thought. As any information given I take what I need and leave the rest. The main thing is for us to know our history so we can continue to push for equality in fisheries, economics, employment, etc. Thanks Don.
