Hickel's Vision

Read his opinion pieces and watch interviews with Wally and others

There is more to the Wally Hickel story than can be included in a one-hour documentary. Governor Hickel's unusual and inspiring ideas and vision deserve to be shared with the world. For this reason, Great Projects Media, the producers of Alaska, the World and Wally Hickel, and the Institute of the North have created this companion website. Students who are taking Alaska Studies and their teachers are invited to visit the Student Interaction Hub to explore Hickel's ideas and learn from his remarkable life story. Buy the DVD
