Alaska Native Heritage Center Celebrates 20 Years

With the goal of sharing, preserving and celebrating Alaska Native culture, the Alaska Native Heritage Center (ANHC) is both a cultural center and museum where people can come to expand their understanding of Alaska’s indigenous peoples.

Established in 1999 as a CIRI-affiliated nonprofit, ANHC offers a variety of classes and programs that allow visitors to experience Alaska’s many diverse Native cultures, and also hosts a number of events throughout the year. Its life-size traditional Native dwellings represent each of the five main indigenous groups in Alaska.

To help raise money for its education and cultural-preservation programs, ANHC celebrated its 20-year anniversary with a fundraiser brunch April 20.
