ECONOMIC VITALITY FOR ALL
Sealaska is a for-profit Alaska Native Corporation charged with generating profits and paying dividends to our 26,000 Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian shareholders in Southeast Alaska through our operations and investments.
Those investments include our involvement in many economic-development and cultural preservation organizations active in the region and on behalf of our people. We believe that lifting the economic prospects of the entire region benefits our shareholders and their children. We work together with state, federal and local agencies and businesses to protect our community’s greatest and most important resources – the oceans, forests and people of Southeast Alaska.
The organizations listed below represent some of our most important partnerships and initiatives.
Sealaska Heritage Institute
Carving and Bark Program
The Carving and Bark program is a joint effort to contribute to the cultural needs of Sealaska shareholders. Red and yellow cedar are custom cut to fill the donation requests of nonprofit organizations throughout the region.
Each year, we donate thousands of pounds of red and yellow cedar to arts programs that benefit thousands of students, community programs, village culture camps and behavioral health programs. While the Carving and Bark program does not provide teaching instruction, we do partner with artists and teachers to host workshops across Southeast Alaska, Washington state and California. We are always looking to expand the reach of our workshops.
If you are interested in having a workshop in your community, receiving materials, or learning more, please contact us.
