An open letter to Sealaska
and Sealaska's original shareholders
By Michael Nelson
July 06, 2006
Since Sealaska intends a vote on the descendent issue, I have
a suggestion that only Sealaska's original remaining shareholders
should be allowed to decide if descendents should be allowed
to join the rolls of Sealaska. In other words, if a shareholder
received his/her shares due to gifting or other means and is
not an original shareholder, they should be ineligible to cast
a ballot for this issue. If Sealaska is serious about "our"
deciding whether descendents should be allowed to be part of
Sealaska, Sealaska should let the original shareholders decide,
not those who stand to benefit from the dilution of Sealaska's
