Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) Conveyances
ANCSA was enacted in 1971 to settle aboriginal land title claims with Alaska Natives. Part of ANCSA provides for each specific regional or village corporation to select federal lands within their legally defined regions to be conveyed to them. The selection process was completed in the early 70s, and the BLM is currently working through some of the more complicated conveyances and patents.
Additionally, under Section 14(h)(1), Alaska Native regional corporations were allowed to submit applications to obtain title to lands across the state containing Native historical places and cemetery sites.
