Assimilation Under Duress


We, the undersigned Alaskan Natives of Hydaburg, Alaska, hereby declare that we have given up our old tribal relationship that we recognize no chief of clan or tribal family…that we have discarded the totem in exchange for the stars and stripes as our only emblem…

Thanks to Nahaan for this. Signed about 3 or 4 generations ago.
