Progress for the next 10,000 years… True to identity, heritage, and values, Alaska Natives
are informed and engaged in leading the decisions that shape the future.

First Alaskans Institute (FAI) is a supportive working environment that promotes and uplifts our Indigeneity. Our dedicated team is committed to addressing Alaska Native priorities and advocacy, social justice and racial equity issues that impact our Native community and Alaska, intergenerational trauma and healing, and strengthening our relationships, ways of life, ways of knowing, cultures, and languages.

Here at FAI, we know that we are responsible for carrying more than 10,000+ years of ancestral knowledge into the future. With rigor, humor, resilience, healing, vigilance, and love, we seek to practice this in all we do in the world around us, and we are looking for the right person to help us advance our important statewide work with and for our Alaska Native peoples and communities.

First Alaskans Institute requires employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of hire.

First Alaskans Institute (FAI), a 501(c)(3) Alaska Native statewide nonprofit organization, is accepting applications for our Summer internship Program.
