The Arctic Studies Center's "Living Our Cultures, Sharing Our Heritage: The First Peoples of Alaska" exhibition at the Anchorage Museum features more than 600 Alaska Native objects from NMNH and NMAI collections. Through Native voice and text, with video and interactive media, the exhibit places masterworks of the past into the context of peoples' lives today. Ongoing programs include endangered language and cultural heritage workshops and monthly lectures by Alaska Native artists and scholars.
