As the 50th anniversary of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act approaches, corporations, subsidiaries and shareholders in and outside the state are reflecting on the landmark legislation and how it’s evolved over time. Despite the successes, problems remain, including how younger generations of Alaska Natives will be included. In the final Talk of Alaska program in the ANCSA at 50 series, young leaders discuss their vision moving forward.
