CULTURAL heritage guide services:

Alaska Native Voices trains and prepares its Cultural Heritage Guides to take long-standing and tested interpretive principles, paired with our years of experience in cultural tourism to provide memorable experiences and cultural insights to travelers. Guides share not only traditional knowledge and perspectives but also share the balance of contemporary life while embracing culture and tradition. We empower our guides with the tools they need to bridge cultures and create a memorable visitor experience.

We work with numerous organizations seeking to develop and train their own guide staff to better present the cultural and regional indigenous history with a keen eye on accurate and respectful interpretation. We train Native interpreters to more meaningfully represent their people and we also work with non-native guides to empower them to share the cultural landscape.

Alaska Native Voices has received great reviews for our unique programs. Our interpreters and trainers have received certification from the National Association for Interpretation and provide an authentic insight into the historical, spiritual and cultural significance of their homeland.
