A Place For All Alaska Natives

When the Alaska Native Heritage Center was formed in 1989, we were created with the vision of being a community and a place of healing for all Alaska Natives. ANHC’s vision is, “Thriving Alaska Native people and cultures are respected and valued.”

We believe that modeling respect, love, and support for all of our people will help pave the way for others to do the same, resulting in systemic change in how the larger community treats people from all backgrounds.

We are engaged in this work because it saves lives and because we love our community. We are dedicated to operationalizing Native values of acceptance, love, diversity, and community. We are also dedicated to doing everything we can to ensure we meet the needs of our community, which includes facilitating safe community events centered on all aspects of Native identity.

ANHC is a place where we honor, respect, and celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are a place of healing—a place of action. And a place for all Alaska Natives.

Should you have any questions about our ongoing work, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly by email at

ANHC is temporarily closed to the public from February 2024 – May 2024 for renovations to ANHC’s facility.
