Sharing the land
By Craig Moen
November 19, 2006
Would God's view of sharing give me license to move into someone's
back yard, cut down the trees, and build a house? Some folks
seem to figure that the conquest of America is over and done
with now, and that the First Nations should just get over it
. At least in other areas of Alaska, ANCSA awarded allotments
of land to the people who had been living there already for centuries.
Here in Ketchikan they got zip-zero-nothing. I hope that God's
view of equity includes rectifying that land ownership issue
To the original inhabitants
of this Great Land, thank you for sharing.
