About Us

The Alaska Native Heritage Center (ANHC) is a living cultural center located in Anchorage, Alaska that promotes active observance of Alaska Native culture and traditions, featuring permanent collections and educational programs. Visitors to ANHC can enjoy activities on a campus surrounded by Alaska’s beautiful wilderness, never guessing that such a peaceful place could be located in the state’s largest urban center.

Guests can stroll through six authentic life-sized Alaska Native dwellings situated in a wooded area around beautiful Lake Tiulana and will be introduced to the rich and diverse cultures of the Athabascan, Inupiaq/St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Yup’ik/Cup’ik, Aleut, Alutiiq, and the Eyak, Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian peoples.

Each village site has a traditional structure along with artifacts that each group used in their daily lives. Make sure to see the whale bones at the Inupiaq site; a favorite spot for picture-taking. Visit with the culture hosts in each village site.
