Troth Yeddha' Initiative

To honor Alaska's first peoples and strengthen the bridge between their cultures and higher education, we will develop the Troth Yeddha' Park and an Indigenous studies center. As a statewide academic center with close connections to other UAF institutes, the Troth Yeddha’ facilities will be distinct from other establishments that celebrate specific Alaska Native cultures. The Troth Yeddha' Legacy initiative builds on UAF's decades-long history of service to rural and Native students through entities such as the Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development and the tribal management and Native arts programs.
