    This kind of recognition by the American government is way overdue. I hope with all my heart it is the beginning of change for the all our first people.

    Alaska should be proud of the dignity and clarity of the Alaska delegates in this video. I sincerely hope President Obama is able to fulfill his desire to visit Alaska next summer. It sounds as though the future looks brighter today!

    ” “This is very historic. For the first time in history, we have a president of the United States … who actually apologized to us … promised us – They promised us, in front of God and everyone else” to listen and address Native American issues. ”

    It is too bad Alaska’s governor, Sean Parnell, didn’t have time to go across town today and meet the President of the United States. The governor’s excuses for not doing this are silly. He could have spoken to the locals another time.

    He could have asked, in one sentence, “How’s that disaster declaration going?” Perhaps such an exchange might have been the difference between disaster declaration and no disaster declaration.

    Republicans need to get a clue– if they want a future for their party, they’ll need to serve their constituents. Today Parnell chose extremism and partisanship over solutions and working relationships.
