Sinew, Salmon, Shareholders and Cell phones: Four Visions for an Alaska Native Future

2010-03-03 by News, Sports, and Art

Alaska Native tribes are committed to protecting, at the village level, the lands and waters upon which they depend for subsistence, culture, traditional language and community wellness. Tribal leaders have spent decades working to forge tribal self-sufficiency, self-determination and healthy lands and waters so their cultures and communities can survive and thrive. The next generation needs to know how great tribal leaders have dedicated their lives to lead their people through conflicts and challenges. Speakers include Earl Polk, Paul Ongtogruk, Tina Woods and Larry Merculief. This series is supported by UAA and the Alaska Humanities Forum.
