Abstract [en]

In 1867 Alaska was bought by the US from Russia for the amount of 7.2 million dollars. No concern was taken to natives who has been living on the land for centuries. When Alaska became a state in 1959, a question of returning land to the Natives arose. This resulted in the Alaska Natives Claims Settlement Act that was passed in 1971. According to the Act thirteen Native corporations were to be founded. These corporations received both money and land from the state of Alaska and the federal state, and these corporations were supposed to conduct profit. This Act extinguished all aboriginal title to land in Alaska. The purpose of the thesis was to determine the degree of success in twelve of the corporations. Our hypothesis is that the corporations will be successful in a neo-classical economic view. The result concluded that only one of the corporations has managed success.
