2017 Elders & Youth Conference

The First Alaskans Institute Elders & Youth Conference is a dynamic convening that brings our Elders and Youth together to strengthen cultural continuity through inter-generational relationships that deepen their abilities to be leaders across Alaska and the world. This year marks the 34th annual statewide convening and First Alaskans Institute continues to be honored to steward this gathering of our most precious community members.

The conference will be held on Monday through Wednesday, October 16-18, 2017, at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska.

First Alaskans Institute proudly announces: "Our 2017 conference theme “Part Land, Part Water – Always Native.” which speaks to how our identity as indigenous peoples is informed by our deep connection to our lands and waters, no matter where we live, and recognizes that Alaska always has been – and always will be – a Native place. Our theme was crafted using the thoughtful contributions and ideas of our 2017 Statewide Elders & Youth Council, FAI staff, and other members of the community."

Elders always FREE to attend.
Early Bird special for Youth registration is $45 (ends October 2nd). $55 for youth registration after October 2nd.

Resilience Screening (Free!)
Aug

Resilience Screening (Free!)

Join us for a free screening of 'Resilience- The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope', the follow-up film to the award-winning documentary Paper Tigers.

Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Screening made possible through support from the Alaska Children's Trust.

Brought to you by the Ketchikan Indian Community and Women in Safe Homes. Contact Arika Paquette by phone at 907-228-4371 or email.
