Help Support the Alaska Native Veterans Allotment Bill

Former AFN Vice President Nelson Angapak testifies on the Alaska Native Veteran Allotment Equity Act

Congressman Don Young introduced HR 2387, A Bill to amend the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act to provide for equitable allotment of land to Alaska Native veterans on May 15.  If passed, the bill would allow Alaska Native men and women who served in the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War era to apply for a Native allotment. AFN fully supports this legislation and we are working with Senator Sullivan to get a companion bill introduced on the senate side. Please show your support for this bill by adapting this form letter and sending ir to our Alaska delegation.  If you are a veteran who would qualify for an allotment under this bill, please tell the delegation your story!
