Sealaska applauds Craig Tribal Association (CTA) for taking the necessary steps to transfer a portion of its land holdings into trust with the U.S. Department of the Interior. Placing lands into trust can provide a new source of businesses and opportunities for Southeast communities.
It is exciting to see an Alaska tribe exercise its authority as a sovereign government. Alaska tribes like CTA have the knowledge and leadership to self-govern. As a result, CTA is providing positive impacts to its members, residents of Prince of Wales Island and the community. With lands in trust, CTA can increase its activities for the benefits of its membership.
