Arctic Youth Ambassadors pose for a photo

My name is Carter Price, I am of Aleut descent (the Aleuts are the indigenous people from the Aleutian Islands), and I’ve lived in Unalaska, Alaska for 18 years now. As I’ve grown older, I have been able to appreciate where I come from and what it means to be Aleut. Sharing my heritage is important to me, so it’s great that I get to share it with people as an Arctic Youth Ambassador. I was first introduced to the Arctic Youth Ambassadors by my friend Cade Emory Terada, who is also in the program.

This portion of the Rocky Mountain Front is considered sacred by the Blackfeet Tribe, and is part of a Traditional Cultural District. These characteristics caused Congress to legislatively withdraw the area from mineral development in 2006.

When the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) mailed its first set of purchase offers back in December 2013, to landowners with fractional land interests on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, it was hard to imagine the impact the Program would have across Indian Country. But, after reaching agreements with 41 tribes to cooperatively implement the Program, its progress has exceeded expectations.
