Leadership Development

Helping to develop the
next generation of Alaska Native leadership, ensuring that they are connected to their culture and each other.

• Get involved in the upcoming First Alaskans Institute’s 37th Annual Elders & Youth Conference scheduled for October 11-14!

• The First Alaskans Culture Camp Support Fund was created to provide financial support to Alaska Native culture camps across the state that are deeply impacted by the current pandemic. Culture Camps are critical to our peoples’ well-being and we look to the leadership of the camps to find innovative and safe ways to offer virtual and/or physically distant camps or cultural learning and activities as best suits their community.
