are informed and engaged in leading the decisions that shape the future.
First Alaskans Institute, a 501(c)(3) Alaska Native statewide nonprofit organization, is currently not accepting employee applications.
Apply for the First Alaskans Culture Camp Support Fund! It 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. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all funds are allocated. Funds are limited, so we thank you in advance for understanding that we may not be able to fund every applicant or fund every project at the amount requested. Awarded funds can be retroactive to January 1, 2020 and must be closed out by December 31, 2021.
Here at First Alaskans Institute (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.
