SHI raises Soboleff Center funds during Celebration

Casey Kelly – KTOO | June 18, 2014
Sealaska Heritage Institute raised more than $75,000 last week during Celebration for the Walter Soboleff Center under construction in downtown Juneau.

Sealaska Heritage Institute is a private, nonprofit founded in 1980 to promote cultural diversity and cross-cultural understanding. The institute is governed by a Board of Trustees and guided by a Council of Traditional Scholars. Its mission is to perpetuate and enhance Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures of Southeast Alaska.

Sealaska, Values In Action
Sealaska is the Regional Native institution established under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA). Almost 22,000 tribal member shareholders of the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian own Sealaska. Sealaska’s purpose is to strengthen our people, culture and homelands through values in action.

360 North and KTOO are proud to partner with Sealaska Heritage Institute to share Celebration with all of the people of Alaska.
