Program areas at Alaska Humanities Forum

Humanities programs encompassed a wide range of Humanities topics including community conversations, a leadership program, Alaskan history and the annual governor's awards for the arts and Humanities. These programs help pass on the values, methods, and wisdom of the Humanities to future generations. The Alaska Humanities Forum issued grants to individuals and small organizations, which funded operational support (covid relief) and humanities-based projects in small communities across the state. Projects cultivate enjoyment of the Humanities in disciplines such as cultural studies, archaeology, ethics, philosophy, history, linguistics, folklore, languages, theatrical arts, and film. There was a significant change in delivery of programs due to fact that the Forum had to change from delivering Humanities programs through in-person events to virtual events due to the covid pandemic.
Salmon program: the purpose of the program is to achieve a more sustainable relationship between salmon and people. The program selects 16 individuals who are proven leaders from different viewpoints. These "salmon fellows" will be engaged in an 18 month program, focused on promoting the following: personal growth,network growth, and relationship growth. Each fellow is awarded a 5,000 grant up front, and 5,000 at the end of a successful completion of the program. The three year program allows for two cohorts of fellows. Other program expenditures are related to the salmon fellow gatherings projects.
Education programs encompassed a wide range of programming targeted to youth and educators including post-secondary preparation, culturally responsive teaching trainings, regional cultural inductions, Alaska history day, and youth leadership programming grounded in cultural awareness and confidence. There was a significant change in delivery of programs due to fact that the Forum had to change from delivering education programs through in-person events to virtual events due to the covid pandemic.
