Alaskan Native News
From national policy to tribal politics, environmental and subsistence issues, and anything else that affects Alaskan Natives, we take time to regularly speak with journalists, newsmakers and others about the important issues of the day and let you know about them here.
Updates from the 2017 Alaska Federation of Natives conference:
“You’re about to witness history in the making,” said Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) General Counsel Michelle Borromio, addressing the audience last Thursday.
The nation’s first compacting agreement between tribes and a state government was signed on the opening morning of the AFN Convention, after Alaska Governor Bill Walker and Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott gave speeches about the urgent need to address social and economic problems in rural parts of the state.
