We the People Alaska

To support grant competition, publications, lectures and public meetings related to Alaska's history and cultural heritage.

We the People Alaska. Abstract:The Alaska Humanities Forum invites Alaskans to the learned teaching, study, and greater public understanding of U.S. history, culture, and democratic principles in We the People Alaska. In this project, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities We the People program, the Forum encourages creative exploration of any of the many aspects of Alaska's history, culture and democracy, especially as part of the U.S. experience. Project narrative. Alaska, We the People will allow participants to explore subjects such as civic engagement, Alaska's civic history, the development and/or future of our democratic principles and participatory government, Alaska's defining experiences and heritage (espeically surrounding statehood), and the diversity of our shared political and historical culture. School-and library-based collaborative projects involving NEH's We the People 'Picturing America' program will also be considered.
