"A Dangerous Idea: The Alaska Native Brotherhood & Struggle for Indigenous Rights" by Peter Metcalfe
Decades before the marches and victories of the 1960s, a group of Alaska Natives were making civil rights history. Throughout the early twentieth century, the Alaska Native Brotherhood fought for citizenship, voting rights, and education for all Alaska Natives, securing unheard-of victories in a contentious time. Their unified work and legal prowess propelled the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, one of the biggest claim settlements in United States history. "A Dangerous Idea" by Juneau writer Peter Metcalfe documents this important story. Published by University of Alaska Press.
