Dugout canoe project to kick off in Sitka

Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) is partnering with Sitka National Historic Park to make a full-size, Native canoe in an effort to preserve the ancient but endangered knowledge of making the traditional watercraft known as dugouts. The project will be led by master carver Steve Brown, who will teach the canoe-making process to apprentices T.J. Young, Tommy Joseph and Jerrod and Nicholas Galanin, who also are accomplished artists. The institute began pursuing the project in earnest after artists who participated in SHI's first Native Artist Gathering in 2015 ranked canoe construction as a high priority, said SHI President Rosita Worl. "We could identify only a few master carvers who are able to make traditional canoes, and that set off alarms," Worl said....

Young Responds to President’s FY17 Budget Proposal

Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young shared the following statement in response to the President’s Fiscal Year 2017 Budget proposal submitted to Congress earlier today:  “While I appreciate the increased attention this proposal brings to Alaska and the Arctic, including the nation’s growing need for a polar class icebreaker and the unique challenges facing Alaskan families and communities, overall this budget is more of the same – an explosion of new taxes, no constraints on our skyrocketing federal debt, and a double down of failed federal policies. “This is a frustratingly insincere proposal because it identifies problems of great concern to many Alaskans, but fails to identify any genuine path to solve them.
