Join us on Thursday July 21st for a community conversation in person at the Alaska Humanities Forum office! This conversation is centered around the guiding question: how do we learn our history? 

This conversation supports an intentional community conversation with a specific purpose: to reflect on how we came to learn about who we are and where we come from as individuals and a community. Participants will watch a short interview with Cordelia Qiġñaaq Kellie, which was filmed as a part of the workshop Braided Stories: Equitable Communities for Alaska’s Children & Families hosted by R.O.C.K. Mat-Su.

Community conversations are a space to bring folks together to connect on a topic and guiding question; using toolkits that are a part of the Kindling Conversation Program for the Alaska Humanities Forum. These spaces are welcome to anyone and participation is encouraged but whatever folks want to share or not, is completely up to them!

We will be hosting at the Alaska Humanities Forum office downtown at 421 W 1st Ave #200, Anchorage, AK 99501. Appetizers and drinks will be provided.
