FEMA Funding Directly to Alaska Tribes

Alaska Tribes have not had the benefit of organized training under FEMA due to the State of Alaska's failure to recognize tribes as governments. The current law [Stafford Act] needs to be amended to provide Alaska Tribes equal representation. Alaska law needs to be amended to put Tribes before Native Corporations. The money for 229 Tribes is diverted to the State and the Tribes receive nothing.
