“During my internships I was able to see firsthand how the corporation worked. I also was able to see how the Sealaska Heritage Institute offers many programs and promotes culture, identity and Native pride. I was introduced to a tremendous network of people and opportunities through the internship and after. I would highly recommend the internship to fellow shareholders and descendants to get a better feeling of how the corporation works.”
