Dear Mr. Ongtooguk:

          I am writing to you today in support of the exceptional work you are doing on the website alaskool.org.

          Alaskool.org makes information about Alaska Native history, education, languages, and cultures easily accessible. Alaska Native children and parents, researchers around the world, individuals investigating their heritage, and others who are interested in Alaska’s diverse Native peoples are all taking advantage of this truly remarkable resource. This website is a tool that is invaluable in sharing Alaskan Native history with individuals that may live in a city and never have a chance to visit Alaska.

          I commend you on all the work that you have put into compiling and posting historical documents and creating an on-line interactive language center. This website is a resource that my staff will access often and I will share with my friends and family.         

          Please let me know if I can be of any assistance in further supporting your efforts on alaskool.org

Sincerely,
DON YOUNG
Congressman for all Alaska
