The year 2015 was the 35th anniversary of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). The web sites listed below examine ANILCA from a variety of perspectives. This list is notĀ comprehensiveĀ and only touches on issues such as subsistence. The researcher is encouraged to follow additional links contained in these web sites and use web search engines for further information.

The U.S. Department of Interior Federal Subsistence Management Program provides the following resources on ANILCA:

OPINIONS AND EDITORIALS

The Alaska Native Curriculum and Teacher Development Program provides a journal article written by Steven McNabb, titled “Native Claims in Alaska: A Twenty-Year Review,” which covers ANCSA and ANILCA at www.alaskool.org/projects/ancsa/mcnabb/s_mcnabb.htm

LitSite Alaska features excerpts of interviews and event transcripts of participants reflecting upon the 30 years since the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.

ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES

The Alaska Department of Fish and Gamewebsite contains information on ANILCA native allotments and ANCSA land conveyances.

The National Parks Conservation Association web site contains a fact sheet and brief history of ANILCA at www.npca.org/media_center/fact_sheets/anilca.html.

The U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management web site contains the Alaska Mineral Assessment Program page. The purpose of the program is to assess the mineral potential of public lands in Alaska as specified in Section 1010 of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, PL 96-487.

HISTORICAL MATERIALS

The Jimmy Carter Library web site provides access to presidential documents in digital format that led up to the enactment of ANILCA. These are searchable through the National Archives ARC Basic Search at www.archives.gov/research/arc/index.html. Click on “Basic Materials Search.” Check the “Descriptions of Archival Materials linked to digital copies” box, limit the search to the Jimmy Carter Library, and search “Alaska lands.”

ANILCA TRAINING

The Institute of the North offers an ANILCA seminar described at www.institutenorth.org/programs/alaska-commons/anilca-seminars/. The curriculum is designed to educate all stakeholders about the law in order to ensure that it is implemented correctly and fairly.
