Our mission is to preserve and strengthen the traditions, languages, and art of Alaska’s Native People through statewide collaboration, celebration and education.
Over the years, ANHC has developed ground breaking programs that impact young people through programs like our nationally award winning after school high school program, at-risk middle school program, summer internship, and most recently a program expansion to serve an even more at risk population of Alaska Native youth in MacLaughlin, Save and Benny Benson Centers.
2016 is a very important year for ANHC, it marks our 16th year of operations and gives us a moment to reflect on our many successes. In our 16th year, we must imagine a future where Alaska Native languages, traditions, and values are thriving for another 10,000 years.
The Center is embarking on an aggressive, mission-driven, programmatic and artistic plan centered on our traditional Alaska Native values. We are designing programs in strands that strengthen our commitment to:
• Artistic practice and training
• Alaska Native Languages
• Living Exhibitions
• Festivals and performance
• Social and physical health
• Convenings and networks
• Advocacy on a policy level for Alaska Native languages, traditions, and values.
To sustain and develop these valuable programs, ongoing support from people like you is essential. The Center has a brand new membership program with benefits and categories to fit your level of support (student, ANCSA and more). To become a member, visit here to see the contribution levels.
It is with support and contributions such as yours that the Alaska Native Heritage Center is able to continue striving towards it's mission of preserving and strengthening the traditions, languages, and art of Alaska's Native People through statewide collaboration, celebration, and education.
