Landless Natives of Ketchikan
By James Llanos Jr.
November 13, 2009
Please attend our next Landless meeting on Sunday, December 6th,
from 2PM-4PM at 429 Deermount Avenue. This issue began with the
1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). This is the
bill that passed through Congress that settled aboriginal rights
with Alaska Natives. In short, this was a process that set eligibility
for the Native Communities of Alaska to be a part of ANCSA.
There were 5 Alaska Native
Communities that were left out of ANCSA for unknown reasons,
even though they qualified. These communities are Haines, Ketchikan,
Petersburg, Tenakee and Wrangell.
