Kodiak Alutiiq Cultural Values

We are the descendants of the Sugpiak, the Real People. Understanding our environment and events that have shaped our lives and created the culture of our ancestors is vital for our children's cultural survival. The history of our People and our place in the world is a part of who we are today. Kodiak Alutiit must learn and pass on to younger generations our understanding of our natural world: the sky, land, water and the animals. As we meet the challenge of living in the 21st century, we must continue to live in honor of those things we value:

Our Elders

Our heritage language

Family and the kinship of our ancestors and living relatives

Ties to our homeland

A subsistence lifestyle, respectful of and sustained by the natural world

Traditional arts, skills and ingenuity

Faith and a spiritual life, from ancestral beliefs to the diverse faiths of today

Sharing: we welcome everyone

Sense of humor

Learning by doing, observing and listening

Stewardship of the animals, land, sky and waters

Trust

Our people: we are responsible for each other and ourselves

Respect for self, others and our environment is inherent in all of these values.
