Alaska Friends Conference

What's New

Alaska Friends Conference is supporting the Tribal Council of the Organized Village of Kake, AK by fundraising for the Native-led Kake Regional Cultural Healing Center in Southeast Alaska. The Kake Regional Cultural Healing Center will be a place for people to experience land-based healing for substance abuse, rooted in cultural practices and values.
