AFN has shown itself to be a dynamic voice for Alaska Native people with the ability to influence public policy at all levels of government. Additionally, AFN recognizes the importance of building an ever-increasing capacity within all the various Alaska Native institutions, and particularly within the sovereign tribal nations in Alaska.
