Native Heritage Month UAA Blogs

This student project, honoring Alaska Native Heritage Month 2010, seeks to highlight ideas and resources related to selected objects from Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center at the Anchorage Museum.

The University of Alaska Anchorage students who created these blogs are enrolled in two linked courses: AKNS 290: Contemporary Native Life, taught by Professor Nancy Furlow, and PRPE 108: Introduction to College Writing, taught by Professor Shannon Gramse.

Look for daily updates to these blogs throughout Alaska Native Heritage Month 2010. Thanks for reading.
