Byron Mallott Speaks Nov. 2 on Native Issues
October 29, 2009
Tlingit leader Byron Mallott will give a lecture on Monday, Nov. 2, on the Native corporations formed under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.
The lecture will focus on efforts by Alaska Natives to transform the corporations into Native institutions in the face of Congress’ competing intent to assimilate Native people economically through profit-making corporations.
The talk is part of a brown-bag lecture series sponsored by Sealaska Heritage Institute to celebration Native American Month.
The lecture is scheduled from noon-1 pm in the 4th floor boardroom in the Sealaska building. It’s open to the public and free of charge.
