Rep Young said: "I think everyone should be ashamed of the bureaucracy. This is their land,"
I'm ashamed of you Mr. Young for not taking the lives of 3 entire Southeast Alaska communities into account before trying to ramrod this bill through the house. I am ashamed that you represent me in congress. I am just plain ashamed of you, period.
The land on Kosciusko Island and No. Prince of Wales Island was NEVER the property of Sealaska Corporation. And if what you are implying is that Sealaska represents the entirety of the Southeast Alaska native population then you are being extremely deceptive- to the point where I can certainly say that you are "playing the race card" for your own political purposes and for the quick and easy profits of Sealaska corporation at the expense of 3 communities full of hard-working, subsistence living, Alaskans. Shame on you Mr. Young. You are responsible for the division and hatred that is now brewing in Southeast. The bad-blood is on your hands.
