Description

In 1967 FNA was incorporated as a nonprofit under the laws of the State of Alaska. Membership then as it is now was open to Alaska Natives and American Indians of one-quarter blood or greater who once a year elect a nine-person board of directors. Today FNA is a powerful and influential Native American voice in Alaska. Over the years our organization has changed public policies that were discriminatory to our people and our programs have helped countless people find new jobs, maintain sobriety, celebrate their culture, and receive an education.

Mission

To provide quality services in a professional manner for its membership and the greater Fairbanks community. These services are provided through special and innovative programs, which preserves the membership’s unique lifestyle and culture, while improving the quality of life for the community.
