Citing tribal sovereignty, Chickaloon leaders spurn fire marshal's stop-work order

 


WASILLA — The Chickaloon Village Traditional Council is defying an order from the Alaska State Fire Marshal's Office to halt construction on a tribal office building until a state review is done.

Chickaloon Native Village officials say the tribe's right to self-governance trumps a stop-work order issued by a fire marshal during a tense encounter last week near Sutton that was first reported by the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman newspaper.

The Chickaloon Native Village tribe is one of 229 tribes in Alaska to be federally recognized.
