Sealaska Celebrates Grand Opening of Walter Soboleff Building

The Grand Opening Ceremony for the Walter Soboleff building will be held on Friday, May 15, 2015.

A strong financial base allows Sealaska to support cultural initiatives and programming through Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI). The cornerstone of Sealaska's investment with SHI is the grand opening of the Walter Soboleff building.  Sealaska is proud of its $1 million in cash donations to the construction of the new facility, the donation of the land the building sits on along with more than 200 logs.

A live webstream will be available visit www.sealaskaheritage.org.
