Thank you for funding our trip to AFN convention in Anchorage

Sound off on the important issues at

Aan Yatx U Saani Lexxi (Children of Noble People) would like to thank the people and businesses that helped finance their trip to attend the Alaska Federation of Natives' convention in Anchorage. Although we were going to be in Quaana Night, we were moved out because the group's bibliography was not received in time.

We instead performed for two schools, a major hotel and at the Tlingit and Haida dinner that was sponsored by Tlingit and Haida for several Alaska tribes attending and being acknowledged at the convention.

The children really enjoyed the trip. We were able to take up 28 students from the Juneau area. They were excited to perform for the schools and said it was a positive experience for them. A better way to teach our children is to let them know that it is important to know who they are. We flew up on Alaska Airlines and stayed at the Hampton Inn.

Again, thank you. Goonash Cheesh Ho Ho. We could not have done it without the donations from Sealaska Heritage Corp.; Driftwood Lodge; Alaska Pacific Bank; Juneau Youth Services; Nana Regional Corp.; ANB Grand Camp, for letting us fundraise 50-50 raffle tickets; ANS, also for the 50-50 raffle tickets; Kikiktagruk Inupiat Corp.; Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School; and for the parents who helped cook and serve all those Indian tacos and fry bread.

It is much greater experience when the children see their parents helping them out. It was a great way for the schools up in Anchorage to get to know the children of the Southeast region, witnessing them embrace their culture and be active in keeping their heritage alive.

Thank you for your hard work against snowfall on Starr Hill

A big thank-you goes out to Hayden Garrison, Starr Hill neighbor and hero. Because of you, we've been able to navigate Sixth Street early in the mornings and throughout the day. Thank you for your perseverance, hard work and dedication through the snowfall and slush.
