November is officially deemed Alaska Native Heritage Month

By Kristen Durand

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - House Bill 126 was signed into law Saturday during a meeting of the Alaska Native Brotherhood/Alaska Native Sisterhood Grand Camp at Alaska Pacific University.

The legislation permanently establishes November as Alaska Native Heritage Month.

A statement from the Alaska House Majority says HB 126 was broadly supported in both the House and Senate and is the first bill sponsored by Alaska's newly created House Special Committee on Tribal Affairs.

Earlier this year, HB 126 passed the Alaska House of Representatives 36-to-1 and passed the Alaska Senate 18-to-0.
