Native claims in Alaska: an overview

Native claims in Alaska: an overview
Pages: 7 - 30
Auteur(s) / Author(s): Ernest S. JR. Burch
Résumé:

En 1971 une loi de règlement des revendications autochtones (Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, ANCSA) était votée au terme de dix ans d'intense activité politique de la part des autochtones d'Alaska. Sept ans après, il ne semble pas que cette loi ait réglé tout ce que beaucoup la croyaient en mesure de régler. Malgré tout elle devait marquer un tournant dans l’histoire des peuples aborigènes d'Alaska. Ce texte fait le point des revendications autochtones, en insistant sur les principales dispositions de l’ANCSA et leur application.

Abstract:

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) of 1971 concluded a decade of intense political activity by Alaska Natives. Seven years later it appears that ANCSA did not settle as much as many originally thought it would, although it certainly marked a major turning point in the history of Alaska's Native peoples. This paper presents an overview of Native claims in Alaska, with emphasis on the major provisions of ANCSA and their implementation.
