OUR VALUES, OUR VOTE, OUR FUTURE
There is power in your vote. Indigenous people have not always had the right and access to vote. Today, we vote for the health, wellbeing and future of our people and relatives.
In Alaska, there are 229 federally recognized Tribes. The Alaska Native percentage of voting age population is 17.3%. That is the highest Native population of potential voters in the country. NPA advocates for voters to use our voice and our vote to elect people who will advocate on behalf of all Alaskans, work alongside Tribal leadership, and fight to protect our homelands and ways of life. Representation of Alaska Native people is needed in all areas of leadership, at every decision-making table and in positions of power. We support voters by providing accessible information and breaking barriers to voting through education campaigns, policy and advocacy, and endorsing candidates running for office.
Candidate Recruitment & Endorsement
Our current government leadership is not representative of communities of color, with American Indians and Alaska Natives especially lacking visibility in positions of power. NPA is dedicated to working with partners across the state to address issues and barriers put in front of us and work to ensure those truly reflective of Alaska are elected into positions. We are committed to thinking outside of the box, being innovating in ways to engage those who have been systemically disenfranchised and feel that their voices don't matter or make a difference.
We must be an advocate for change by supporting and being directly involved in the recruitment and electoral support of Alaska Native candidates, and those candidates who have a proven record of supporting Alaska Native people and is committed to protecting our traditional way of life.
