World War II Alaska

How did the Second World War shape Alaskan territory? Learn firsthand from Alaska Native elders, thanks to Holly Miowak Guise's digital humanities project World War II Alaska. Guise, an Inupiaq historian and professor at the University of New Mexico, launched the project in April 2021. Visitors are invited to honor survivors of the Unangax (Aleut) Evacuation and Internment, listen to oral histories of WWII veterans, and hear stories from members of the Alaska Territorial Guard. Additionally, under the Native Children tab readers can watch two videos featuring Alaska Native elders reflecting on their experiences growing up during wartime. The Resources page links out to related archives and educational tools. The site is a great resource for historians and educators, and the digital format makes it easy to incorporate into online classrooms. World War II Alaska is funded by several institutions, including the American Philosophical Society (APS) Library, the Cook Inlet Historical Society, and the Yale Oral History Travel Fellowship.
