ANCSA Research Resource Guide Now Available Online

ANCSA Research Resource Guide Now Available Online

The Alaska Historical Society has launched its new online publication, Guide to the Sources for the Study of the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. The three-part guide includes an extensive survey of archival resources, a bibliography of popular and scholarly print materials as well as films, oral histories, webinars, and radio programs (many of which are available online), and a guide designed for social studies teachers and instructors who teach the history of ANCSA.

William Schneider directed the two-year project to mark the 50th anniversary of the passage of ANCSA. The guide, edited by Karen Brewster, was a collaborative effort funded by Doyon, Sealaska, Calista, Bering Straits, and Koniag Regional Corporations as well as the Rasmuson Foundation and the Atwood Foundation.

It is online on the AHS website at www.tinyurl.com/ANCSAguide or ScholarWorks@UA at www.tinyurl.com/ANCSAguideUA
