Elder Visit to APR

Elders from Allakaket, Alatna, Bettles and Evansville came to visit Fairbanks for three days between November 11 and the 13th on a grant funded by the National Park Service. They visited the Rasmuson Library to see the Alaska and Polar Regions collection (oral history, archival photos and film footage), the Museum of the North, The Morris Thompson Visitor Center, the Alaska Native Language Center and the National Park Service Office to see material collected that are related to their villages. This repatriation project that will enable the University to make more material available online for future generations based on the elders selection of the most important collections.
