Alaska Natives and the Land: The Legacy of Statehood

This project includes an exhibit and web site at the Alaska Native Heritage Center that will provide Alaskans with a view of the Statehood Act from an Alaska Native perspective, particularly as it relates to the relationship between Alaska Native people and the land. Through these exhibits, visitors will be able to explore the facts of land ownership and learn about the unique Alaska Native attitudes and cultural understandings about the relationship (spiritual, physical, and legal) between people and the land of Alaska.
