Alaska Federation of Natives to return to Fairbanks

After this year's successful convention, the Alaska Federation of Natives has decided to return to Fairbanks in 2007.

This October, the conference was held for the first time in Fairbanks since 1998. Many attendees praised the city for the warm welcome they received.
