Of the Alaska Natives, there were many from Kodiak Island, and several from outer Aleutian Islands. These Alaskans contributed greatly to Fort Ross, and yet we have not explored their story nor acknowledged their sacrifices.

On May 17th we launch what we hope will become an annual event at Fort Ross: the All Alaska Native Day. This event will pay tribute to the enormous importance of the Alaska Native people who were so influential in the history of Fort Ross. It will be a full day, with presentations by historian Dan Murley and writer and baidarka-builder George Dyson, as well as bentwood hat demonstrations,baidarka races in the cove, and of course rich conversation, good food and warm drinks.
