The term “resources” does not include shares of stock held by a native Alaskan in a regional or village
corporation during the 20-year period in which the stock is inalienable (nontransferable)
under sections 7(h) and 8(c) of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA).
Effective January 1, 1992, this stock becomes transferable and will then meet the
definition of a resource. However, a statutory exclusion applies (SI 00830.830).
If your office is in the Seattle Region,refer to regional instructions on ANCSA. If
a case arises outside that region, use Seattle regional instructions. You can obtain
additional information by contacting the Seattle RO through your own RO.
