New Publication – Growing Our Own: Indigenous Research, Scholars, and Education

Growing Our Own: Indigenous Research, Scholars, and Education

The Alaska Native Studies Council (ANSC) held its first conference in the spring of 2013 in Anchorage, Alaska. The original plan called for a biennial conference, which would alternate between the various University of Alaska campus locations. Due to the success of the first conference at the University of Alaska Anchorage, it has become an annual event, and the University of Alaska Southeast hosted the 2014 conference. The theme of the second ANSC Conference was “Growing our Own: Indigenous Researchers, Scholars, and Education.” This theme was selected by the Conference Organizing Committee and was based on our mission and the interest of participants. The pre-conference symposia showcased Alaska Native artists sharing their works at the University of Alaska Southeast, Juneau campus. The theme “Growing Our Own” was inspired by the work of leaders in the Indigenous education movement.
