Our Mission

About Us

The Ahtna Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that was established by Ahtna Incorporated in 1986. We are dedicated to preserving and furthering the cultural knowledge of Ahtna shareholders in traditional songs, dance, language, history, and customs, as well as assisting them in achieving their educational goals. With some assistance from Ahtna Inc., in combination with a number of grants and donations, Ahtna Heritage is able to provide various services and programs such as the Ahtna Cultural Center, the digital archive, and the Ahtna Heritage Dance Project.
