Sealaska Heritage announces participation in genetics study
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Sealaska Heritage Institute officials say they are collaborating with a university that is studying how the DNA of indigenous people might have been affected by trauma linked to European colonization.
Another research trip to Hoonah is planned for later this year.
Participants will receive $50 Amazon gift cards.
Officials say the institute is consulting on the effort with the Hoonah Indian Association and the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium.
