Reading, writing, Raven.

Wisdom is timeless. Much of the knowledge and tradition of Southeast Alaskan Native people is as relevant today as it was millennia ago. Through our partnership with universities, school districts and other educational institutions throughout Southeast Alaska, educators are drawing on Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian culture to teach core subjects and promote both cultural identity and cross-cultural understanding.

Our education programs reach children at all educational stages, from pre-school to high school. Our scholarship programĀ  helps Alaska Natives who are Sealaska shareholders and descendants pay for college, university, and vocational and technical schools. And our curricula help educators teach Southeast Alaskan Native languages as well as core subjects integrated with Native culture, art, language and history.

For more information about our education programs and resources, please contact Education Director Jackie Kookesh at (907) 586-9229 or jackie.kookesh@sealaska.com.
