Red Cedar of Afognak

With funding from the Administration for Native Americans and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Native Village of Afognak embarked on a mission to preserve the history and culture of Afognak and to develop corresponding educational materials. One project was The Red Cedar of Afognak: A Driftwood Journey children’s book and curriculum.

In addition to the Red Cedar of Afognak, NVA simultaneously worked on a project to develop an Afognak history book, through an oral history data recovery project.
