Alaska’s most venerable Alaska Native organization opened its 104th annual meeting Wednesday with a plea for youth and a look toward the future.

The 104th annual Grand Camp of the Alaska Native Brotherhood and the Alaska Native Sisterhood, which runs through the weekend, will bring constitutional changes to an organization that defined the quest for Alaska Native rights in the 20th century.

In the 21st century, as tribal governments assume new power and authority, the ANB and ANS are seeking to adapt and find a new niche.
