Welcome to Alaska Reception

Saturday, Aug. 9, 7-10 p.m.

Alaska Native Heritage Center

Coaches depart at 6:45 p.m. from the Hotel Captain Cook, Downtown Marriott, Hilton Anchorage, Sheraton, Embassy Suites and Hilton Garden Inn.
Nestled among secluded woods just 10 minutes from downtown Anchorage, the Alaska Native Heritage Center is an Alaska treasure. Attendees can listen as a village elder shares the ancient oral tradition, learn from a master artisan and experience the arts of the different cultures in the Hall of Culture, and feel the essence of Alaska’s first people who have lived here for thousands of years. The event will feature two different dance performances, entertainment by the band Medicine Dream, shopping opportunities and a chance to stroll around the center grounds to visit different village sites. The reception will feature salmon, halibut, shrimp, chicken, pizzas, gourmet mac-n-cheese, elk sliders and more.
Fifty delegates at the reception will get a chance to take a dogcart ride pulled by seasoned sled dogs.
