Quote: "Being Native, Alaska is my ancestral homeland with the Tlingit people. It's where we're from. ... For me, I'm pleased that there is a Native American Month. It gives an opportunity for the society to learn things about us. We've come a long way in having good relations between Natives and non-Native."
November is National Native American Awareness Month. To be featured, contact Neighbors editor Kim Andree at 523-2272 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
