Quote: "As Natives we are born into a culturally rich way of life. Despite huge assaults on our customs, traditions and culture such as assimilation, the protocols of our way of life are alive and well. Many of your Native people pledged to lay down their lives to protect this land and country that we all love. Per capita, more Alaska Natives have served in the U.S. military and all the wars that the United States has ever been involved in, than any other state."
