    Mike Williams: Trust lands are vital to tribal self-determination


    Mike Williams Sr. of the Akiak Native Community provided this testimony to the Bureau of Indian Affairs in support of including Alaska tribes in the land-into-trust process:
     As you are well aware, trust lands have long been a keystone of federal Indian policy. They enhance tribal self-determination generally by helping Tribes solidify a land base; protecting homelands from alienation and allowing for a more comprehensive exercise of governmental authority over internal affairs and tribal lands.
