We greatly appreciate your patience as we navigate through the pandemic while creating an easily accessible digital version of our magazine that celebrates and uplifts Alaska Native peoples, communities, and our ways of life.

To increase readership and access, we are currently offering the magazine free of charge. In lieu of paid “subscriptions”, we are offering you the ability to become a supporter. In addition, we are launching a new online ad sales process in June to make it easier for advertisers to select from a menu of options for future editions.
