Indigenous Peoples Day, honouring the first peoples of Anchorage and Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – First Alaskans Institute is thrilled to support Anchorage Mayor Berkowitz’s proclamation to name the 2nd Monday in October “Indigenous Peoples Day” throughout the Municipality of Anchorage, which spans from the Native Village of Eklutna to Girdwood – geographically the largest municipality with populations larger than 100,000 in the entire United States – and Governor Bill Walker’s proclamation to declare Indigenous Peoples Day throughout Alaska.
