The Robert Aqqaluk Newlin, Sr. Memorial Trust
The Aqqaluk Trust has a vision for the Inupiaq Eskimo of Northwest Alaska Native region. Our goal is for every individual to receive an education, speak the Inupiaq language fluently and fully understand the richness of their past so they may succeed in their future.
The Aqqaluk Trust is founded in memory of Robert "Aqqaluk" Newlin Sr. one of the great leaders of the Inupiat Eskimo. Robert Newlin dedicated his life to preserving the culture and dignity of the Inupiat people. He believed that healthy families restored dignity and hope in a rapidly changing world. The Aqqaluk Trust is a non-profit organization which depends on contributions from individuals and organizations. The Aqqaluk Trust's mission is to empower the Inpuiat people of Nortwest Alaska through language, culture and education.
