First Alaskans Institute
The Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity (ANDORE) is a project initiated by the Alaska Native Policy Center at First Alaskans Institute and funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation through the America Healing Initiative. This statewide project - based on Indigenous principles and values - aims to initiate, foster, and grow racial healing by meaningfully engaging in community conversations across Alaska on race, racism and racial equity; seeking to move communities into a place of understanding, healing and growth.

A series of questions was provided to participants in the Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity project to help facilitate discussions on the topic of racial inequity. They are provided here as a tool for those interested in hosting dialogues of their own. Click to view the questions.
The Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity approach to hosting conversations is born from the value of having meaningful and sometimes difficult conversations using indigenous principles and values. Participants in individual dialogues were asked to approach the conversation within the parameters of the agreements chosen by the hosts. Click to view the dialogue agreements.
