Sealaska S 881 observation
By Michael Lee Beasley


March 08, 2010

Arm in arm and toe-to-toe, Sealaska tribal member shareholders are united in their quest to secure acreage owed for for a debt unpaid on behalf of the Federal Government and the People of the United States, since 1971. Nearly 4 decades or 40 years have not satisfied this debt totally.

To date, nearly 5000 shareholders have passed away to walk into the forest and will never realize the land claims settlement fully. They lived lives of an unsatisfied debt and also died on our tribal unpaid debt. On behalf and out of respect of the precious members past and present, this tribal member would like this debt settlement satisfied thru S881. It has been incredibly sad.

Thank You.
