Oct. 3, 2016 - A leadership dispute is expected to be continued at a 3-day conference of the Association of Village Council Presidents kicking off in Bethel Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016. Protesting delegates plan to push their argument that the member villages are in charge of the regional nonprofit, not executive leadership. Protesters say the organization's executive board and their attorneys have hijacked authority from the tribes that created it decades ago to advocate for 56 Alaska Native communities.
