Native Knowledge: Respecting and Owning our Living Culture
Celebrate Alaska Native intellect. Encourage young people and Elders to attend the 29th First Alaskans Institute Elders & Youth Conference October 15-17, 2012, in Anchorage. The conference stimulates dialogue between young people and Elders and encourages them to maintain traditional Native values and practices while thriving in the modern world.
Participation at the conference has increased over the years, and we are proud to announce that we expect over 1,500 participants to be in attendance this year.
Our staff and the Elders & Youth Council are busy preparing for this year's conference. This three-day meeting directly precedes the annual convention of the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) and is the only gathering of this magnitude in Alaska.
Alaska Construction Career Days will take place on Wednesday - October 17, 2012 - 1:30PM to 4:30PM. This event offers you interactive activities that allows you to explore the different trades within the construction industry.
