Tell  A Friend

Haa Aaní is legislation that will protect Native sacred sites, enhance environmental protection, create sustainable timber activity and opportunity for alternative forms of economic development in Southeast Alaska by returning Native lands to Sealaska.
Upon fulfillment of its ANCSA land entitlement as prescribed in the legislation, Sealaska will relinquish its rights to 327,000 acres of valuable land consisting of 277,000 acres of designated roadless areas and 112,000 acres of productive old-growth.
The bill was introduced in the U.S. Congress by Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich and Congressman Don Young on April 23, 2009. It will likely be considered later this year by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, chaired by Sen. Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico and by the House Natural Resources Committee, chaired by Representative Nick Rahall of West Virginia.

For more information, you can view the official press release, the executive summary of the bill.
