SHI offers summer internships to art students who are pursuing an arts and science degree, preferably with a focus on Northwest Coast or Alaska Native arts through studio arts, performing arts and technology, or creative writing.
Alaska Native arts are sold through SHI’s Sealaska Heritage Store and its website. SHI assures that all art sold through the store that is marketed as Native-made is in fact Native-made, and not fake knock-offs that unfortunately are common in the retail market. Customers who buy through the store help support Alaska Native artists, and the proceeds help fund training in Native arts.
The Sealaska Heritage Store is located at 105 S. Seward S. in Juneau on the street level of Sealaska Heritage Institute.
SHI, the Sealaska Heritage Store, and Sealaska Heritage Arts Campus participate in Juneau’s First Friday, a monthly celebration of the arts. We host demonstrating artists plus Native artist and fashion designer vendors, who sell their work during the event. Artists and designers may click here to sign up for a free table.
