Tribal Sovereignty Special on KDLG
On Wednesday morning (4/10) at 9:00am, the regular broadcast of Native America Calling will be replaced with a special encore episode of "Our Alaska".
What does tribal sovereignty mean in Alaska? KNBA's Joaqlin Estus talks with two experts about the legal basis for tribal sovereignty, and tribal judicial systems at work in Alaska. Hear about a court ruling that Alaska tribes can put land into trust status, tax-free and safe from seizure.
