Alaska Native Map

About 20 percent of Alaska’s 650,000 residents are Native or have Native descent, but there was a time when their cultures dominated this vast land. As the state continues to grow, Alaska’s Natives are finding it more important than ever to celebrate their heritage and educate residents and visitors about Alaska’s first peoples.

A good source for further information is the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage, which features exhibits and programs on all of Alaska’s Native cultures. The Alaska Native Heritage Center makes a great starting point for your cultural visit to Alaska, with informative displays on each of Alaska’s cultural groupings.

In general, there are three groups of Alaska Natives identified by region – Northern and Western Coast, Interior and Inside Passage. Within each region Native cultures are further divided based on similarities in tradition, language and proximity.
