The Alaska Native Heritage Center has experienced success and positive growth over the years, and we appreciate your belief in our mission. 

Through your support, you are helping the Alaskan Native Heritage Center expand and sustain its educational and cultural programs.

Our mission is to preserve and strengthen the traditions, languages, and art of Alaska’s Native People through statewide collaboration, celebration, and education.

Since opening our doors to the public in 1999, ANHC has strengthened and celebrated Alaska Native cultures, heritages, traditions, and values through our renowned projects and programming, including our Cultural Tourism Summer Internship Program. We not only have a responsibility to represent Alaska Native cultures, heritages, and traditions to our guests in the most authentic way possible, but we also have the power to shape our future by educating our Alaska Native youth in the most diverse ways possible.  It is this lens that guides and inspires the important work we do year after year.

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:

  • Education
  • Artistic Practice & Training
  • Alaska Native Languages
  • Living Exhibitions
  • Social & Physical Health
  • Partnerships
  • Advocacy on a policy level for Alaska Native languages, traditions, and values. 

It is with the support and contributions like yours, that the Alaska Native Heritage Center is able to continue striving towards its mission of preserving and strengthening the traditions, languages, and art of Alaska’s Native People through statewide collaboration, celebration, and education.
