Voices of Our Elders
Abstract
The purpose of this report is to: (1) Provide Alaska Native elders with the opportunity to voice their needs and requirements for culturally congruent care. Alaska Native Elders are being invited from across the state of Alaska to express their wishes and expectations for services and care that are consistent with their traditional community heritages, tribal values, and customs. (2) Empower Native communities to incorporate traditional and contemporary health practices into their health care systems. During the first year of the three-year project, the plan is for the information to be shared and made available to Native communities through summary papers, handouts, and a web site.

Abstract
The boarding school era is an unclear and tentative time in history for many Alaskans. This era has come to the forefront while the Alaska state legislators work toward reinstating regional schools. The purpose of this timely research project was to listen to the voices of Alaska Natives who attended boarding school thirty years ago in order to learn more about this obscure period. Researchers for this study performed a secondary analysis on data originally collected in 2005, focusing on different perspectives than the original researchers. Our team was made up of Alaska Natives trained in psychology and social work and involved in healing activities. In particular, researchers spotlighted resiliency factors of students attended boarding schools and attempted to gain a deeper understanding of the mental-health impacts of the boarding school experience and the intergenerational long-term effects. The project team wanted to honor those who openly revealed themselves and their experiences.
