It is our sense of responsibility for each other
and our planet that defines our community.

Sealaska is innovative and solutions-oriented. As our companies profit through their innovative work repairing our planet, we are investing these proceeds in programs and people supporting the fabric of our communities.

LANGUAGE, EDUCATION AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT

We are thinking generationally at Sealaska.

Over the next decade, Sealaska is committed to focusing on the revitalization of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian languages. We must remove the roadblocks to learning these languages by providing the tools and programs for universal learning; and magnifying the voice of individuals and institutions partnering in the effort to save our languages, and fundamentally, our people.

We are honing in on where financial success can have the greatest and most meaningful impact – helping our people, especially our teachers and youth, building strong foundations to attain higher education and speak in our traditional languages.

We work with partners to provide Alaska Native youth opportunities and skills for healthy and full futures. 

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Each year, Sealaska provides funding and other in-kind support to hundreds of community-based programs and institutions – including Spruce Root, Sealaska Heritage Institute, and the Sealaska Carving Program. We don’t see this as philanthropy. Instead, we see this as a core reason we go to work every day – to partner in creating opportunities throughout Southeast Alaska.

Spruce Root helps new and expanding business leaders thrive by providing coaching, training, and lending from Yakutat to Hydaburg.

Sealaska Carving Program provides the wood. Our community partners provide the vision. This program provides red and yellow cedar planks to arts carving programs throughout Alaska and the Northwest.

SPEAK! Language is the pulse of our future and we must SPEAK before it’s too late.

PUBLIC POLICY & ADVOCACY

Sealaska advocates on federal and state legislation and regulations that impact Southeast Alaska communities and its people. Some of our ongoing efforts include supporting landless communities, advocating for the Alaska Native Vietnam Veterans Allotment, and standing for Native subsistence rights to support food security.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

An apt measure of our progress and success is the number of partners, local and national, who have stepped forward to build a shared future with us. We are privileged to live our tradition of Wooch.een with the following organizations:
