Group seeks Alaska Native Heritage Month proposals

The Alaska Native Heritage Month committee seeks event proposals from individuals, businesses and organizations for the upcoming month-long celebration of Alaska Native and American Indian Cultures in November. The deadline for submission is Oct. 1, 2011.

Events should be clearly tied to the theme, “Share the Spirit,” and have emphasis on Alaska Native and American Indian cultures, languages and/or identity and may include activities such as book readings, film screenings, lectures, forums, history lessons, cultural activities, dancing, storytelling and arts and crafts workshops. Publicity and some financial assistance may be provided to selected events. Those interested will be responsible for coordinating, managing and hosting events.
