Panel Focuses on Women Behind ANCSA Movement

Joaqlin Estus, KNBA – Anchorage

The ad hoc “ANCSA at 40” committee recently hosted its third panel on the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, or ANCSA, this one featuring some of the women behind the claims movement. The four panelists represented their people in meetings in Alaska and in Washington, D.C. during the struggle for ANCSA. They’ve served in a number of other leadership roles — in the Legislature; as staff to a U.S. Senator; as school board, tribal council, and borough Assembly members; and on the boards of Alaska Native regional non-profit and for-profit organizations.
