Shareholder of the Year, Elder of the Year and Youth Recognition Award Nominations
We need your help to recognize CIRI shareholders who have made incredible contributions to Alaska Native people, worked to preserve our culture and passed traditions and knowledge on to others.
There’s an entire generation of CIRI shareholder and descendant young people who are already making strides toward becoming tomorrow’s Alaska Native leaders, and we want to honor them, as well.
Help us celebrate their work by submitting a nomination to CIRI for the CIRI Shareholder and Elder Shareholder of the Year Awards and the Youth Recognition Award by 5 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time, August 14.
