Attending the CIRI C3 Experience during high school was an experience I will never forget! Attendees came from across Alaska and the Lower 48. One thing I’ve always appreciated is the way Alaska Native people make connections:

“Oh, so-and-so is your uncle? My auntie works with him.”

“Your cousin is the best at cooking and has the best laugh, she’d always come over!”

Looking for a connection is a staple of who we are, and it brings us closer together.
