About Alaska Native Heritage Center, Anchorage

This is essentially a cultural and educational venture designed to teach Alaskans and tourists alike what it is like to be a Native American in Alaska. The facility is 10 miles from downtown anchorage, and covers 26 forested acres. Visitors are treated to a tightly scheduled whirlwind of activity, flawlessly executed each and every time – these are the Introduction, the Dance, the Storytelling and the Games. The main facilities include:

  • Theatre: This is where the introduction happens.
  • The Gathering Place: The dancing and storytelling happens here.
  • The Hall of Cultures: You learn about Athabaskan people, Eyak people, Tlingit people, Haida people, Tsimshian people, Unangax people (Aleut), Alutiiq people, Yup'ik, Cup'ik, Siberian Yupik, and Inupiaq. Craft activities for children included.

Outside, you can walk among life sized Native American dwellings around the spectacular Lake Tiulana. Make sure to take photographs at the Inupiaq site.

  • Absolutely gorgeous place to take your family, friends, I've gone with coworkers and recommend it to tourists from all over the world. No better institute for furthering our unquenchable thirst for knowledge of the diverse and rich cultures that I am proud to be a descendant of. Beautiful grounds that showcase various housing units, vegetation used throughout our history for medicinal purposes and diet. Highly knowledgeable staff that are always friendly, professional and full of answers to questions. Priceless videos, pictures and handcrafted artwork to feast one's eye upon. Always a pleasure to be able to attend events, such as those of dancers from any number of the state's tribes perform, or especially when traditional regalia and foods are present. A highly recommend you check out the Heritage Center, whether or not you're Alaskan or American Native, whether or not you're from Alaska or even the states.

  • Nice place. Very informative. Great place to learn about the native Alaskans and different tribes. You can learn about their lives and different parts of Alaska where they originally were from. The dance performances were OK, but try to do the guided tour with the free guide/staff inside as opposed to exploring on your own.

  • Very interesting and knowledgeable workers there. The dancing and singing was awesome! The replicas of the houses they lived in were very cool too, it's like you're stepping into the past and walking into their world. I recommend the guided tour, just cause you learn so much more. My guide was Austin and he was great. He like the rest of the workers there are so happy to be part of sharing and informing everyone. Everyone did a great job!

  • I didn't get to explore much as the main room was rented for a party but this has already made my short list for guest destinations when in Anchorage. I've heard nothing but great reviews, the main hall was spacious and beautiful. I can't wait to go back and check it all out!

  • Sorry we did not allow for more time here--they shooed us out at closing time. Impressive exhibits both indoors and outside. Very interesting presentations by natives at frequent intervals. We enjoyed the drumming and dancing, as well as storytelling. Allow a full day.
