Tanana Chiefs Conference receives nearly $12 million in settlement with Bureau of Indian Affairs


FAIRBANKS — Tanana Chiefs Conference will receive $11.78 million in the settlement of a nationwide class-action lawsuit against the Bureau of Indian Affairs over the federal agency’s short-funding of contracts to tribal organizations.

The settlement totaled $940 million nationwide, with about $100 million of that going to tribal entities in Alaska.

The settlement with the BIA was announced in September, but it wasn’t until earlier this month that it cleared its final legal step in a New Mexico federal court.
