Alaska Natives maintain their rich culture and traditions in close connection with the land, and because of this, they are among the first to feel the negative impacts of changes in the environment. Through the Alaska Native Fund, ACF supports Alaska Native individuals and organizations working to address critical conservation issues affecting their cultures, communities, and economic opportunities.
