Remember all those timber dollars going north? Well, it appears 7(i) - a legal provision which requires regional Native corporations to share their revenues from timber, oil, gas and minerals with each other - works in reverse also. Shareholders, you can take credit for the dividend also. After all, shareholders created the permanent fund and it kicked in $178 per 100 shares. The shareholder permanent fund and 7(i) represent $933 of the $1,090 per 100 shares Sealaska is about to distribute.
