This year ANB-ANS Camp 14 had the opportunity to elect officers who will lead our camp and keep it going.

I have been involved with ANB-ANS first as a Junior member selling, "The Voice of Brotherhood" newspapers in Craig, a town located on Prince of Wales. Then, in 1982, as an adult I am an active member and love every minute of serving.

ANB-ANS is the parent organization to all native politicial entities today. I can and never will forget its compelling history. To turn my back on this organization's work is to turn my back on our ancestors and our valued elders. To the youth of today, acknowledge your history, if you do, then you know what your goals are.

The Grand Camp convention will be held here in Ketchikan in 2008 and fundraisers are held monthly to accomodate this worthwhile event.
