Beringia Days International Conference
The Beringia Days International Conference is a public forum sponsored by the National Park Service that highlights the heritage shared by the United States and Russia. The conference brings together the Native peoples of Alaska and Chukotka, Russian and American scholars, researchers, environmentalists, and representatives of government and non-government organizations to report on projects funded through the Shared Beringian Heritage Program. The conference also welcomes other presenters who would like to speak on topics of interest to the Beringia region.
