The order was signed in Juneau, the state capital, on Sunday. It took place during the Warming of the Hands ceremony at the First Alaskans Institute’s Social Justice Summit, which concluded on Tuesday.
It was our honor to join @firstalaskans last night to sign AO 300, recognizing the linguistic emergency faced by Alaska's native languages and pledging state support for their revitalization. Looking fwd to language nests & bilingual signage. It's time.— Governor Bill Walker (@AkGovBillWalker) September 24, 2018
