Mitigating Contamination on Alaska Native Lands

The modern history of Alaska is one of massive transfers of land from one government entity to another. Prior to statehood, the federal government owned nearly all the land in Alaska. In 1959, the new state of Alaska got the right to select 104 million acres. As part of the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, Alaska Natives were granted title to 44 million acres—and about $1 billion—in return for relinquishing aboriginal rights to their land in order to permit construction of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.
