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 soon.

To the original inhabitants of this Great Land, thank you for sharing.
