2012 AFN – Carol Wren Demonstrates Success Beyond Barriers

2012 AFN Convention Keynote Speaker

This year’s theme for the AFN Convention is Success Beyond Barriers. President Julie Kitka says the theme shows the resiliency of the Alaska Native people to overcome the many challenges that Alaska Natives face – especially in rural Alaska. Carol Wren, an Inupiaq woman raised for a short time in a foster home and later by her sister and various families in Dillingham, spoke of how she broke through barriers to get to where she is today.
