Morgan X’agatkeen Howard
The recent pandemic showed how we can come together for each other but also highlighted how many of us are suffering. Sealaska has more than 25,000 shareholders and whether you live in a village or an urban center, many of us
are struggling just to get through each day. From rising inflation, a lack of good jobs and mounting debt to mental health issues—all stark realities I experience within my own life and community—we must work together to find solutions.
At Sealaska, we partner with Spruce Root, Sealaska Heritage Institute, Southeast Sustainable Partnership and the Seacoast Trust to find solutions and fulfill our mission. We know that by working together, our potential is unlimited. Our best days are still ahead.
Healthy communities and shareholders are at the center of everything we do. We promise to consistently provide dividends twice a year with the goal of increasing them every year. We continue to expand all shareholder benefits—from
scholarships, internships, burial assistance and employment to our commitment
to saving our languages and fighting for the continuation of our Native way of life. Please join us by letting me know what’s most important to you. Call or email me at: 907.209.0360 or
