Koyukuk River by Angela Łot'oydaatlno Gonzalez

As a statewide Native nonprofit, our FAI team is very connected to our home communities, regions, and our statewide Native family. During one of our weekly virtual team meetings, we share community engagement updates on various happenings in our communities to help guide our work. In an effort to share our knowledge harvest – recognizing this is not a comprehensive overview of all current Alaska Native news – here are some of the updates that were shared below. If you have any questions, updates or suggestions, please send them to [email protected] Quyanaqpak!
