Alaska Indigenous provides critical commentary on the pertinent social, economic, and political affairs of Indigenous peoples in Alaska. We also hope this blog becomes a point of access to research about Indigenous communities through our Publications page. Alaska has the largest proportion of Indigenous residents in the U.S. (15 percent of the population), and we live in ten cultural regions and speak 19 languages. We are a major economic and political force in the state and country.
