Senator Mark Begich Statement on the Death of Katie John

U.S. Senator Mark Begich issued the following statement upon learning about the death of Alaska Native rights advocate Katie John:

“Alaska has lost a steadfast advocate for Native subsistence rights.  From her fish camp on the Copper River, Katie John gave Alaska Natives across our state a voice to their long-sought protection of traditional hunting and fishing rights.  While Alaskans mourn her passing, Katie John’s legacy will live on as I and others work to ensure these rights are upheld.”
