Section 17(b) of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act authorized the Secretary of the Interior to reserve public access easements across land conveyed to Alaska native corporations. These easements allow the public to legally cross native-owned land for the purpose of accessing public land and water. Access and use of private native corporation land outside the boundaries of the 17(b) easements requires prior permission from the land owner.
