JUNEAU (AP) — Sealaska Heritage Institute says a southeast Alaska radio station has donated hundreds of audio recordings to the institute.
The archival donation from Wrangell radio station KSTK consists of hundreds of hours of recordings made from the 1960s to the 1990s.
Institute officials say the recordings document some topics of interest to Alaska Natives as well as the wider community.
According to officials, about 200 reels of recordings must first be digitized before they can be used at the institute's archives center at Juneau's Sealaska Plaza. The archive center is open to the public on weekdays.
Sealaska Heritage Institute is the nonprofit cultural and educational arm of Juneau-based Sealaska Corp., a regional Native corporation.
