ANCSA, an Indigenous Perspective
The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act forever changed the Alaska business landscape. The ANCSA story is often told through a policy and economic impact lens. Sharon Chilux Guenther Lind offers an Indigenous perspective to the journey to ANCSA, all through the lens of her Unangax mother, Angelina Snigaroff Guenther. ANCSA, an Indigenous Perspective provides the listener with a personal viewpoint of the journey and implementation of ANCSA.
