Proceedings from the Alaska Native Studies Conference


Alaska Native Languages & Studies at the University of Alaska celebrates the revival of Alaska Native languages and the study of indigenous ways of knowing in and around the state of Alaska. There are 21 Alaska Native Languages, and an estimated 13% of the Alaska Native population can speak their language. Alaska Natives have incredibly high rates of suicide, accidental death, and violent crime victimization, but are a resilient and strong population. The heritage of Alaska Native people connects them to the land on which they live, and has done so for well over ten thousand years. You are invited to share in the gathering of our knowledge, and the exploration of ways we can make this world a better place by surrounding ourselves with language, culture, and dialogue on the subjects that often challenge us. The Alaska Native Studies Council invites submissions on research and activism from all fields related to Alaska Native Studies of the past, present, and future. The Alaska Native Studies Council promotes a deeper and more sustained commitment to integrating Indigenous perspectives into a variety of educational settings. Our mission is to identify, develop, and implement Native-focused curricula, to promote and publish Alaska Native-related research and pedagogical strategies, to reshape the University of Alaska into an Alaska Native serving institution, and to develop a strategic plan to attain these goals.
