The Alaska Native Heritage Center, a renowned cultural center and museum in Anchorage, is an exciting place where all people come to expand their understanding of Alaska's indigenous people.
Guests stroll through six authentic life-sized Native dwellings situated in a wooded area around beautiful Lake Tiulana and are introduced to the traditional life ways of the Athabascan, Inupiaq/St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Yup’ik/Cup’ik, Aleut, Alutiiq, and the Eyak, Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian peoples.
Each village site has a traditional structure along with artifacts that each group used in their daily lives. We saw the whale bones at the Inupiaq site; a favorite spot for picture-taking. We visited with a culture representative in each village site.
