ICYMI: Alaska Governor Bill Walker (I) offered an apology to Native peoples during the annual convention of the Alaska Federation of Natives. #2018AFN

“As the 11th governor of the state of Alaska, I apologize to you, Alaska’s first people, for the wrongs that you have endured for generations. For being forced into boarding schools, I apologize. For being forced to abandon your native language and adopt a foreign one, I apologize. For erasing your history, I apologize. For the generational and historical trauma you have suffered, I apologize. This apology is long overdue. It is but one step in hundreds more to go on this journey towards truth, reconciliation and healing.”

-- October 18, 2018. Anchorage, Alaska
