  • Alaska Natives question Palin’s support

    By Rachel D’Oro
    Anchorage, Alaska (AP)

    Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin routinely notes her husband’s Yup’ik Eskimo roots. But those connections haven’t erased doubts about the Republican vice presidential candidate in a community long slighted by the white settlers who flocked to Alaska and dominate its government.

    Since she became governor in 2006, many Alaska Natives say they’ve felt ignored when she made appointments to her administration, sided with sporting interests over Native hunting rights and pursued a lawsuit that Natives say seeks to undermine their ancient traditions and treaty rights.
