Ben Baldwin

Alaska (outside Anchorage) Shareholder Participation Committee

Ben Baldwin (Inupiaq) was born and raised on the Kenai Peninsula. He enjoys learning about Alaska Native history and governance systems and is currently enrolled in Alaska Pacific University’s Alaska Native governance program. He has worked for Kenaitze Indian Tribe in various capacities over the years, which informed his choice of degree programs. Ben says it has been exciting finding connections to the past — seeing how diverse acts of Congress led to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act and Alaska Native regional corporations and Tribes working together to raise the quality of life for Alaska’s Indigenous peoples.
