Through education that emphasized English,students were taught to adopt elements of Euro-American culture. Changes in Native Alaskan life were also instigated by the removal of native students from their homes to the school,and by the promotion of skills other than those used in traditional Native occupations. The school also played an important although indirect role,through its students,in the development of Native Alaskan political organization and the pursuit of legal rights for Native Alaskans.
