Welcome to NativeCo!

July 10th, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


For more than ten thousand years, Alaska Natives owned vast expanses of land from which they prospered.  Incrementally taken from them for over two centuries, they would have to fight to gain back the land.  At the turn of the twentieth century, Alaska’s indigenous people formed political organizations, learned Western law, and used the U.S. legal system to fight for their Native lands.   The diverse Alaska Native cultures joined forces and fought to finally receive some of their Natives lands back from the United States Government.  The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) passed and started the boldest socioeconomic experiment ever attempted in the history of the United States.

NATIVECO.COM is the continuation of this story – and the outcome – of that extraordinary fight.
