Coming Soon: History of BMEEC & AKABE.


Birth of AKABE 1980.pdf According to a letter (see linked file) written by AKABE's first president, EMMA G. Widmark, AKABE was inaugurated at the 1980 Alaska Bilingual Multicultural Education Conference.

Here also is the program for the 1979 BMEC as well as a report that was published upon completion of the conference. Back in those days, there was no second "e" in BMEEC.
