2019 Elizabeth Peratrovich Celebration & Grant Goals Discussion
On February 15, 2019 the ANE program will celebrate Elizabeth Peratrovich Day. The celebration will start off with a potluck style dinner, door prizes, Native singing and dancing from Inu-Yupiaq and a discussion about the ANE grant goals led by our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). The night will start off with a welcome from our ANE Director, Yatibaey Evans.
Students will go through the potluck line first to make plates for the Elders present. Baked salmon, salmon chowder, salads, and many other great foods prepared by volunteers will be one of the main dishes share at the potluck.
Grant goals discussions will be led by our Parent Advisory Committee. The committee will discuss the importance of our program and will have an open discussion with the parents to discuss how we can better serve the Alaska Native & American Indian students in our district. During the discussion we would like to invite members from the Fairbanks Native Association board show their support of ANE community and program.
We invite all to come together to celebrate and have a great time. We will need volunteer cooks to help cook for the event. Come and win fantastic door prizes! Our ANE Community Needs Assessment will be made available and we look forward to your feedback and suggestions to help better our program.

2017 Native Heritage Celebrations:
The 2016 Native Heritage Celebration was held in North Pole and Fairbanks, Alaska. The North Pole Heritage Celebration was on November 3rd, 2017 at North Pole Middle School. The ANE tutors in North Pole did a wonderful job at bringing together the community and planning the event. The Fairbanks Native Heritage Celebration was held at Ryan Middle School on November 15th, 2016. Both events included a potluck style dinner and Native singing and dancing from the FNA/JOM Potlatch Dancers. It was fantastic to hear each of the participants in the FNA/JOM Dance group introduce themselves in their Native Language.
The Fairbanks Native Heritage Celebration also announced the 2017 Literacy Challenge Winners at its event. Twenty-two winners were recognized and received prizes for their projects. The grade categories were K-1st. 2nd-3rd, 4th-6th, and 7th-12th. There were over three hundred fifty submissions for the 2017 Literacy Challenge. We congratulate each student who submitted their projects! We are happy that now many students have a deeper knowledge of Native Leaders and Elders.
The Native Heritage Celebrations are an annual event in North Pole and Fairbanks. We enjoy all of our ANE students, families, and staff coming together for a night of celebrating Native culture & student success. We would like to thank our spectacular sponsors who donated the door prizes and winning prizes for the Literacy Challenge and also our volunteer cooks who made the potlucks a success. If you would like to volunteer or have suggestions for future events, please contact the ANE secretary.
