Recognizing the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act and Its History


Come join Alaska Historical Society ANCSA 50th Committee members Bill Schneider, Karen Brewster, and Sue Sherif on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at 7pm as they give a presentation on Zoom as part of the Tanana-Yukon Historical Society Winter Lecture Series. They will discuss the Guide to Sources for the Study of the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act that the committee has just completed.

Recognizing the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act and Its History

Please join us to learn how the Alaska Historical Society has compiled the story of the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) as documented in primary source documents in major archives and key published sources accessible in many of our libraries. The presentation will feature key moments in the events leading up to ANCSA, the passage of the Act, and the subsequent evolution of issues emanating from the legislation, as well as samples of the types of items to be found in the guide. The Guide also features an interpretive essay on ANCSA’s history and legacy, a timeline of key events, an annotated bibliography, a listing of the key players in the ANCSA movement, and educational resources. Join us to learn more about this key part of Alaska history.
