Alaska court finds for Native corporation in land dispute

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska Supreme Court has ruled that permits from an Alaska Native corporation are required for members of the public to do anything but drive the Klutina Lake Road that provides access to fishing and hunting areas near Copper Center. The Anchorage Daily News reports that the recent opinion upheld lower court rulings granting the state right of way along the 25-mile road but limiting the right of way to road travel only. Under the ruling, members of the public will need permits from Ahtna Inc. for activities such as parking, camping or launching boats from the roadside.
