This is a short YouTube video describing the steps the First Alaskans Institute and the Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity project have taken in support of achieving greater racial equity in Alaska. Supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the first phase of the Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity (ANDORE) project was implemented by the Alaska Native Policy Center from 2010 - 2013. The project aimed to initiate, foster, and grow community healing statewide by meaningfully engaging in conversations on race and racism to advance racial equity for all Alaskans.
Goals for the program included reshaping the dialogue on race in Alaska by utilizing indigenous values and principles to bring people together in a respectful way and to challenge perceptions through community conversations; raising the level of awareness about racial matters and racial healing around; and advancing policy solutions that support increased racial equity.
The First Alaskans Institute launched the second phase of the program in 2014, drawing on the momentum of the first phase. The second phase seeks to advance equity through public education and legal advocacy. The ultimate goal of ANDORE is to open people up to putting forward ideas for social and policy change so that racial equity becomes a universally shared value in Alaska.
The First Alaskans Institute is committed to developing the capacities of Alaska Native people and their communities through community engagement, information and research, collaboration and leadership development.
Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity Toolkit contains many resources to help guide meaningful and effective dialogue around the topics of racial equity and racial healing.
