Being Good Relatives
“We work to cultivate a culture of service. We ask, does what we offer our (citizens or shareholders) come from a culture of service? That is of utmost importance. If we fail to be good stewards for our future generations, then we fail completely.” – Being Good Relatives Attendee
Being Good Relatives (BGR) was created to bring focus on learning from positive, strength-based examples of local and regional unity, while also identifying the barriers and opportunities in front of our Tribes and Corporations to enhance our Alaska Native ways of living and knowing. These gatherings are meant to inspire, challenge, and transform our collective experience and amplify the power of our Federally Recognized Tribes and our Alaska Native Corporations to identify obstacles, opportunities, and possibilities in working together to advance Alaska Native peoples and cultures. When we are divided, it weakens our ability to stand up against threats facing us as Native peoples.
