The non-profit Alaska Native Heritage Center honors the diverse indigenous peoples of our 49th state by chronicling Native cultures, languages, and traditions and instilling pride in Native communities. Alongside a serene lake, a wooded path winds through six life-size dwellings in the center's outdoor facilities. These re-creations of ancient homes showcase Alaska's 11 cultural groups, and at each site, cultural representatives perform Native dances, demonstrate games and art, and tell stories about life in the past. The Alaska Native Heritage Center utilizes education and celebration to spread knowledge of Alaska's unique Native cultures across the globe, while also preserving and perpetuating indigenous traditions. Inside the museum, a collection of tools, artwork, and drums provides a tangible representation of contemporary Native people’s lives. The museum covers all native cultures in exhibits such as the Inupiaq exhibit and the Athabascan exhibit, which features a hand-woven birch-bark basket and moccasins made of moose hide and beads. To supplement the interactive displays, the Heritage Center conducts cultural outreach through a variety of programs, including the Walking in Two Worlds program, which connects 6th- through 8th-grade students with their cultural roots. The Alaska Native Playwrights Project helps Native people to find an outlet for their stories through theatrical productions and eloquent playbills.:

Owned by Steven Downer, winner of the World Tea Expo's 2011 Tea Infusion Challenge, Sipping Streams Tea Company hand-blends and brews an aromatic complement of caffeinated, herbal, and ornamental drinkables. Liquid nirvana seekers can pore over a catalog of loose-leaf teas available in an aromatic rainbow arcing from white King of Silver Needles ($21.25 for 2 oz.) and green Imperial Mao Feng ($26.50 for 4 oz.) to black organic Darjeeling ($19 for 4 oz.) and chocolaty Northern Serenity ($18.25 for 4 oz.) varieties. Crystalline kettles ($30 each) can house nostalgic wintry dioramas or showcase the transformation of art teas ($20 for 8 bundles) from lifeless leaves into aquatic blooms. Sipping Streams' eclectic menu of light bites lets tea tipplers pair their libations with Eastern- and British-inspired treats. Inundate mouths with a bite-sized barrage of steamed red-bean-paste buns ($2.50 each), or delicately nibble cucumber sandwiches ($4 each), which combine crunchiness and elegance, much like a Fabergé egg fashioned from potato chips.

Chance and Roxie Mayberry take any opportunity to get out of the studio and into vibrant real-world scenes. As the duo behind Anchorage's Mayberry Studio, they shoot families as they slice down the slopes or bond with animals, and as instructors at Alaska Photography Academy, they take students deep into wild local landscapes. Photo safaris adventure to such destinations as Matanuska Glacier and Hatcher Pass, with some shots even accomplished from the backs of sturdy ATVs. Although these intensive excursions are open to all, more experienced clickers can pursue more in-depth classes or private lessons. No matter the level, courses emphasize practical, professional-grade tips and avoid technical jargon and risqué language such as "flash."
