Indigenous Awareness Workshops

The Alaska Native Heritage Center’s Indigenous Awareness Workshops (IAW) are an interactive step to learning how to work among diverse cultures. Especially useful for business leaders seeking to maximize the productivity and innovation that diversity brings to the office place, IAWs are also beneficial for individuals who are new to Alaska or who are seeking to learn more about Alaska Native people and culture in general.
