Benjamin Mallott Elected President of Alaska Federation of Natives

Alaska Federation of Natives, the largest Indigenous organization in a state with nearly half of the country's federally recognized tribes, has elected a new president.

Thirty-eight-year-old Benjamin Mallott, the son of the son of the late Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott, will step into the role in August, according to AFN. Mallott has been with AFN for more than a decade and currently serves as the organization's Vice President of External Affairs.

Mallott will replace Julie Kitka, who announced her departure in February after leading AFN for 40 years.
