The Alaska Native Heritage Center shows us how the native Alaskans housing has changed to adapt to not only weather but migrations of the native people as they moved to hunt and fish and feed their people in this Wilderness Wonderland.

We enjoyed our visit: demonstrations, interactive showcases and living history in terms of native housing. A visit here is a must if you're interested in tribal migration and living explanations. High recommendation.
