Educational Opportunities with Sitka National Historical Park

Sitka National Historical Park comemorates the 1804 battle between the Kiks.ádi clan of the Tlingit and the czarist Russians, the Russian- American period that ended with the transfer of Alaska to the United States and the Southeast Alaska Native cultures.
The following curriculum based education programs have been developed for teachers to compliment their social studies, geography, and history classes. Please feel free to download what you need.

Sitka NHP is excited to offer educational experiences for local schools, both in the park and in the classrooms. We look forward to working with all teachers to provide programs over web based platforms as well, depending on staff availablity. When you see our menu for Distance Learning opportunities you may notice that you really don't need the ranger for the presentation! All of our educational materials can be downloaded- we even provided a script to accompany each powerpoint slide.
