Alaska Natives represented on Federal Subsistence Board

Two Alaska Natives have been appointed to the Federal Subsistence Board.

Anthony Christianson and Charles Brower will represent subsistence users on the board. They are the two public members who were appointed under a new regulation developed by the Obama administration.

Christianson, who serves as the mayor of Hydarburg, is Haida. He's also the natural resources director for the Hydaburg Cooperative Association, a federally recognized tribe.

Brower, who is Inupiat, works for Ukpeagvik Inupiat Corp., an Alaska Native village corporation.
