Our Vision

Celebrating heritage through living culture.

Our Strategy

The Alutiiq Museum’s work spans the globe, but we have a deep commitment to the Kodiak Archipelago–the museum’s home and the geographic center of the Alutiiq world. We work diligently to involve people of all heritages in educational programming and original research–archaeological studies, language documentation, and collections investigations. By engaging everyone in the celebration of Alutiiq heritage, we reduce cultural isolation, reawaken cultural traditions, build intergenerational ties that broaden cultural understanding, and create a welcoming environment for discovery. We believe that rekindling cultural traditions also depends on the commitment and involvement of community organizations, agency partners, and supporters like you.
