“We call on all Alaskans to exercise their right to vote, with a special call to fellow rural Alaskans to take advantage of this new opportunity available to them in their villages.   Let’s make voter turnout something to be proud of in our state!  Please register and go vote!” - AFN Co-Chair Ana Hoffman. 


The Alaska Federation of Natives was formed in October 1966, when more than 400 Alaska Natives representing 17 Native organizations gathered for a three-day conference to address Alaska Native aboriginal land rights. It is now the largest statewide Native organization in Alaska. Its membership includes 151 federally-recognized tribes, 134 village corporations, 12 regional corporations, and 12 regional nonprofit and tribal consortium's that contract and compact to run federal and state programs. AFN is governed by a 37-member Board, which is elected by its membership at the annual convention held each October. The mission of AFN is to enhance and promote the cultural, economic and political voice of the entire Alaska Native community. Learn more at www.nativefederation.org.
