Our Trees Take Care of Us
Our timber profits help us to share and promote our culture with both the Native community and all other communities in the region.
To support and administer cultural and educational programs, Sealaska created Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) in 1980. SHI activities include the Sealaska scholarship program, as well as Celebration, the Heritage Study Program and other language and cultural programs intended to preserve the cultural history of the people of Southeast Alaska. Sealaska contributes cash and in-kind services to support the operations of SHI. Using Sealaska donations as leverage, SHI raises additional funds.
Sealaska is proud to donate logs for cultural projects. Click here for the Sealaska log donation form.
Sealaska will accept a log donation application with written documentation that the U.S. Forest Service and local village or urban corporations were approached for a log first.
Please note: Sealaska will transport the log from the forest to a log sort yard, generally on Prince of Wales Island. It’s the responsibility of applicants to transport the log to the carving site and to the final display or use site at their own expense.
