Alaska House New York is a non-profit organization formed in 2008 as a cultural center, think tank and native art gallery representing the Alaskan point of view in the East Coast of the USA.

Headed by Tracey Foster, the organization strives to increase public awareness of the complex issues facing Alaska today, exacerbated by dramatic climate change. A multi-purpose space, the Alaska House in Soho [ [http://www.alaskahouseny.org/ www.alaskahouseny.org] ] is intended to be a place for all Alaskans to have a voice in the intellectual, artistic and cultural aspects of its future. Alaska House New York is a free-standing non-profit educational and cultural center with exhibitions of Alaska Native art, facilities for use by Alaskan interests, an ongoing video program, and a gathering place for all Alaskans in New York City.
