Tribal governments don’t often get a lot of recognition for all the services they provide to their members, which also benefit the communities they live in. In fact, most Alaskans know very little about tribes.
On Wednesday’s Juneau Afternoon, the President of the Tlingit-Haida Central Council, Richard Peterson will give the tribal perspective on relationships with the state and federal government — how he hopes the passage of a statewide ballot measure to formally recognize tribes will lead to healthier relationships.
- The wage gap: why salaries for women in Alaska still lag behind their male counterparts.
- Also, from games to hot dogs and chili, fun for the kids and the kids at heart, at the Christ Lutheran Church Fall Harvest Festival.
