The Alaska Federation of Natives Convention (AFN) week is coming up in October in Anchorage! What’s going on during AFN Week? Here is the beginning of a list of events of interest to Alaska Native people and Alaskans. I enjoy going to events during AFN week to learn more about Alaska Native culture and to visit with friends and relatives.
Please feel free to contact me with any events that you would like me to consider adding or comment below.
