A series of activities that explore the history of Alaska's 50 years of statehood including a teacher's institute, a history curriculum unit, a public lecture series, radio broadcasts and a grant program.

In 2009 Alaska celebrates 50 years of Statehood. Over the next five years the Alaska Humanities Forum will re-educate Alaskans about “The March to Statehood”: the story of how a vast, trackless territory with a tiny, determined diverse population joins America. We begin in 2004 with an exploration of the Alaska Constitution. Many scholars claim it is the nation’s culminating state governance document. This education effort will engage, perhaps in their final public service, the energies of a dwindling number of Alaska’s founders, the living "Heroes of History" still with us today.
