Meet the first Alaskans

From the Inupiaq on the Arctic coast to the Haida in Southeast, Alaska’s native peoples—who number about 165,000 today—have indelibly shaped the land they call home. Don't miss the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage. This stylish contemporary cultural museum draws exhibits from all over the state. $25; May 13–mid-Sep; alaskanative.net
