. In Case You’ve Missed It Sealaska Corporation Drops Blood Quantum Requirement for Enrollment « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NATIVE NEWS ONLINE – The change means descendants of original shareholders no longer need to prove they have one–quarter Native blood to become a shareholder, which was a requirement set by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act in 1971. “It was super exciting to see the vote,” said Angela Michaud. Michaud is a corporation board member and was the first person to enroll after the vote. Previously, she had just one share gifted from her grandmother. This new enrollment gives her 100 more shares, which will last her lifetime. But she was most excited for her four children, who can also enroll when they come of age.
