- Joe Nelson of Juneau said many in the delegation felt strongly that the position should be filled by a tribal representative.
- The Presbyterian Church officially apologized to indigenous people across the country during a gathering of Alaska Native people this weekend. For decades the church took part in the forced removal of children from their homes and families.
