ALASKA'S NATIVE PEOPLE ARE DIVIDED INTO 11 DISTINCT CULTURES, SPEAKING 11 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND TWENTY-TWO DIFFERENT DIALECTS. IN ORDER TO TELL THE STORIES OF THIS DIVERSE POPULATION, THE ALASKA NATIVE HERITAGE CENTER IS ORGANIZED BASED ON FIVE CULTURE GROUPINGS, WHICH DRAW UPON CULTURAL SIMILARITIES OR GEOGRAPHIC PROXIMITY.
