After all the time we Alaska Natives have been dealing with both the Palin administration’s actions and inaction toward the plight of Alaska’s rural people, we now find ourselves asking a lot of questions. When I look at where we’ve come from and what I want for my people in the future, I find myself contemplating right now: What does this new leadership mean to bush Alaskans? Fisheries? Subsistence?
I think it’s safe to say that many Alaskans, especially Natives, have not been overly pleased with the Governor’s Office lately or, well, maybe since last fall….maybe even earlier. We once again find ourselves in uncharted territory. Will Mr. Parnell be different, better, or worse?
