The largest meeting in Anchorage brings Alaskans from across the state together to discuss the issues and shape policy on a host of topics. It is the single biggest representative annual gathering in the country of Native peoples. The public is welcome and encouraged to observe.

The Alaska Federation of Natives board of directors has decided that the 2020 Annual Convention will be virtual, citing on-going COVID-19 health and safety concerns.  There will be no in-person component to the Convention, which was to be held in Anchorage at the Dena’ina Center this October.

The virtual convention, scheduled for October 15 and 16, 2020, will feature a combination of live presentations and pre-recorded videos of top local, state, federal, and Native leaders and elected officials, a keynote address by Alaska House Speaker Representative Bryce Edgmon (I), interactive panels, AFN President’s Awards, and much more.  The Convention will be viewable statewide via television, on KNBA radio, on social media and video platforms, and webcast. The popular cultural performances known as “Quyana Alaska” will be presented over two evenings as a “best of” show, using previously recorded performances
