ALASKA FEDERATION OF NATIVES, INTERNATIONAL. Records; 1973-1978. 3 c.u. ft.

The Alaska Federation of Natives, International (AFNI) was created in 1973. AFNI was a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the cause of Alaska natives in the United States and abroad through charitable work and outreach programs. Membership was open to Alaska natives living outside the state of Alaska. AFNI was also instrumental in the formation of the Esk-Ind-Al Corporation, and the Thirteenth Regional Corporation, an Alaska Native Corporation representing Alaska natives living outside the state of Alaska.

This collection contains records of the Alaska Federation of Natives, International. Part A of the collection includes business and organizational records, correspondence, court papers, and literature from other Alaska native organizations. Part B of the collection contains the papers of Helen Marie Klein, who served as Executive Secretary of AFNI. These papers include general files, and legal files of cases involving AFNI and the Thirteenth Regional Corporation.

This collection was presented to the archives in 1998 by Mr. Billy Blackjack Johnson.
