📸About the Cover: Chugachmiut Heritage Preservation hosted summer camps with Accessing Choices in Education (ACE), a program that allows us to provide educational opportunities for students in our communities that are Alaska Native to meet their educational goals. The Chugachmiut Youth Summit was held in July in Anchorage where 12 youth experienced and practiced Sugpiaq language, traditional culture through Elders, recognized experts, through games, crafts, media, models, art, sea life, and plants. Here they are visiting the Alaska Native Heritage Center.

Llangarlluni: Becoming Aware

Our vision is to revitalize the traditional Chugach Native culture and language. The goal is to make Sugpiaq/ Eyak history and heritage a part of the regular school curriculum with support and direction from our Elders’ traditional ecological knowledge (TEK).
