Alaska Federation of Natives convention will be virtual again this year

The Alaska Federation of Natives annual convention will be virtual for the second year in a row.

In 2020, the convention was virtual and shortened out of concerns for COVID-19.

This year, officials postponed the convention until December in the hopes of concerns about the virus would decrease.

Currently the convention is scheduled for December 13-14.

The theme of this year’s convention will be "ANCSA at 50: Empowering Our Future."
