Alaska’s Untaught Histories

This podcast was produced by Iqlas Dubed, and was funded by Center for Safe Alaskans. Marie Acemah and Kaitlin Armstrong provided mentorship to Iqlas on this project.
Iqlas Dubed is looking to change the way Alaskan Schools teach the required Alaska Studies class. As a high school student, Iqlas was struck by how the curriculum lacked Alaska Native history, cultures, and present-day context. This podcast consists of interviews with culture bearers, students, academics, and teachers, and advocates for creating a strong, culturally responsive Alaska Studies Curriculum.
