Abstract

A new lifestyle for the first generation of urban Alaska Natives has developed within the growing urban center of Anchorage. Native people currently have a positive feeling about their cultural survival despite the changes in their environment. Choices by organizations for social welfare, cultural, and educational programs affect the level of Alaska Native cultural activity in the community. This report confirms that present programs for youth activities, arts and crafts, and Native education are actively enhancing Native culture in the city of Anchorage. The areas of Native publicity, political training, and community development are shown to be unacceptably poor. Information from the study also provides the results of a needs assessment for future program development.
