The Alaska Native Studies Council invites you to attend the second annual Alaska Native Studies Conference, held in Juneau, Alaska. Join us to hear about research and activism from all fields related to Alaska Native Studies of the past, present, and future.
The Alaska Native Studies Council promotes a deeper and more sustained commitment to integrating Indigenous perspectives into a variety of educational settings. Our mission is to identify, develop, and implement Native-focused curricula, to promote and publish Alaska Native-related research and pedagogical strategies, to reshape the University of Alaska into an Alaska Native serving institution, and to develop a strategic plan to attain these goals.
