      A little breezy on some issues, but this volume provides a very accessible look at the relationship of Alaska Natives to the land in the post-ANSCA era.

      A very short, beautifully written history of current Alaska Native issues. Starting with a basic outline of each cultural group, describing different tribes and clans across the state, the book provides great historical information. Later chapters branch into more complex and controversial topics: explaining the Alaska Native corporations/dividends, debating the use of land (for subsistence, mining, drilling, etc), and how members get healthcare.

      Read for EDCN614 class. This UAA/APU publication gave more comprehensive information about Alaska Natives than in most textbooks on Alaskan history.
