Sealaska Corporation

On behalf of Sealaska, the regional native corporation for southeastern Alaska (representing 20,000 Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian tribal member shareholders), the firm is working with members of the Alaska congressional delegation and administration officials to move legislation that would permit Sealaska to select Native lands pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971, while preserving as much as 40,000 acres of roadless forestland.  

The legislation would ensure the preservation of hundreds of Native sacred and cultural sites and permit Sealaska Corporation to pursue economic development activities in an environmentally sustainable manner. In addition, the firm represents Sealaska on all matters related to federal policy in the Tongass National Forest in southeast Alaska, the nation’s largest national forest.
