2. I agree that this needs to be investigated

but I'm not sure why it matters that this was owned by a Alaska Native Corporation. It's doubtful that the explosion had anything to do with the fact that a business arm of the Alaska Native community owned the company. For McClatchy(a news organization that at one point owned the Anchorage Daily News) to focus on the Native connection is a bit disturbing...can't quite say it's openly racist but it's something to be suspicious of.

NANA corporation, in all liklihood, wasn't involved in the day-to-day management of the shipyard. And the explosion almost certainly would have happened if the corporate structure involved was totally white.

(not attacking you for starting this thread, Judi-just trying to point out something to be wary of in the article's, and especially the McClatchy headline's phrasing. A lot of rich white folks, in and out of Alaska-I follow this issue as a thirty-year Alaska resident-, desperately want to break up the Native corporations and take all their wealth.)
