Sponsors

More than fifty years ago a small group of representatives met for the first statewide gathering of Native peoples, which became the Alaska Federation of Natives. That first meeting addressed land claims and since then has grown in size and scope, both in the issues addressed and in number of delegates participating. Today’s conventions bring together an estimated 5,000 attendees, with thousands more tuning in to the statewide television and radio broadcasts and watching online.

AFN’s partnerships with the business community, particularly through sponsorship of the AFN Convention, are critical to carrying out our organization’s mission. Open to the public, AFN’s annual convention is the largest meeting of its kind in Alaska and, with our dedicated sponsors’ help, brings together thousands of Alaska Native individuals, businesses and organizations, observers and special guests from around the globe.
