Meet our students

The Tribal Governance program has helped me grow into my role as First Chief of Circle. No longer do I feel like I am struggling or blindly trying to figure stuff out. The skills you learn in the program immediately improve your performance in the job you have now.Jessica Fields, Tribal Governance
I encourage any student pursuing higher education to take a moment and think about the seven generations behind them, that set the table for their journey. Then think about the seven generations ahead whose journey you will impact once you become an ancestor. This exercise is incredible humbling and enlightening.Vina ƛáqvas gḷ́w̓a Brown, Indigenous Studies
I encourage others to further their education through the Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development Program because it revitalized my motivation to continue my journey in higher education. The faculty and staff at DANSRD gave me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally through a curriculum that truly meets the needs of Alaska Native and Indigenous people.
