Village Journey : The Report of the Alaska Native Review Commission

Village Journey: The Report of the Alaska Native Review Commission

Thomas R. Berger
$0.00


This print-on-demand title is available by request from most booksellers.

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act passed by Congress in 1971, hailed at the time as the most liberal settlement ever achieved with Native Americans, granted 44 million acres and nearly $1 billion in cash to a new entity -- Native corporations. When this book was published in 1985, that settlement was bitterly resented by the Alaska Natives themselves. Thomas R. Berger, invited by the Inuit Circumpolar Conference to head the Alaska Native Review Commission, traveled to sixty-two villages and towns, held village meetings and listened to testimony from Inuit, Aboriginal peoples, and Aleuts. His report, Village Journey, suggests changes in the law and public attitudes that will be required to reach a fair accommodation with the Alaska Natives and enable them to keep their land for themselves and for their descendants.

The author's new Preface deals with problems still facing Alaska Natives and their corporations.

This is a new release of the book published in May 1995.
