This website is a product of the National Archives education division and is made possible in part through the National Archives Foundation. The site provides access to primary source materials related to the early history of Alaska.
The 150th anniversary of the Alaska Treaty of Cession was 2017. To commemorate the significant event, the Alaska Historical Society coordinated a statewide calendar of celebratory events, promoting discussions by posting a series of articles, images and documents on this website, and providing links to sources for additional information along with news about commemoration activities.
Alaska's Digital Archives presents a wealth of historical photographs, albums, oral histories, moving images, maps, documents, physical objects, and other materials from libraries, museums and archives throughout the state.
