Face the Past . . .

The past meets the present at the Alutiiq Museum, Kodiak's Alaska Native culture center where visitors  explore 7,500 years of Alutiiq heritage. See ancient artifacts, discover history, and learn how traditions continue.

Cama'i - Hello.  We welcome you.

Alutiiq Center Building, 1994.

Our Beginning

The Alutiiq Museum grew from the Kodiak Area Native Association’s (KANA) Culture and Heritage program. In 1987, the KANA Board of Directors resolved that the exploration and celebration of Alutiiq heritage was essential to the health of Alutiiq people. They initiated a set of heritage programs to promote awareness of Alutiiq history, language, and arts.  In 1993 KANA received a $1.5 million grant from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council to develop a state-of-the-art repository and regional research facility. The Alutiiq Museum & Archaeological Repository opened to the public in May 1995.
