Alaska Native Heritage Center

The Alaska Native Heritage Center is coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic on top after being crowned one of “America’s Cultural Treasures” and given a $3 million grant by the Ford Foundation, which supports BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) arts and cultural organizations severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

ANHC will also receive an additional $100,000 in technical services. With the funds, ANHC has plans for several interwoven yet distinct healing-based initiatives to create, expand upon and implement in the coming years, creating an intentional space of healing where the Indigenous community can connect with themselves and their culture.
