Alaska Native Day at Fort Ross

Please join us as the Alaska Natives celebrate our history together at Fort Ross. In the 1821 Census, there were 156 Alaska Natives living on the bluff overlooking the ocean at Metini/Fort Ross.

Marc Daniels of Make Access Iqyax will continue his skin boat build, and Alaskans from California to Alaska will share stories and history.

This year's Alaska Native Day will feature *Sngagim Axasniikangin*, an Unangan dance troupe that dances shares, and honors their Ancestors from the Aleutian regions. Sngagim Axasniikangin was taught by the Axtam Dance troupe and they continue to honor their knowledge and generosity by wearing regalia and sharing the story of the Unangan pre-contact.
