"The 20th Annual Tribal Providers Conference, going on in Anchorage through this week, has drawn hundreds of participants from villages across Alaska. The gathering is sponsored by the federal Interior Department’s Bureau of Indian Affairs, and presents dozens of workshops and informational sessions on topics ranging from health and foster care to tribal government issues.

One session on Tuesday filled an entire ballroom at the Egan Center with those eager to find solutions to the high rate of suicide among Alaska Natives."
