Nestled on the east side of Alaska’s largest city of Anchorage is the most diverse neighborhood in America: Mountain View.

With over 100 different languages spoken by families in the Anchorage School District, census data show that 16.3 percent of Anchorage residents speak a language other than English at home.

Alaska is home to at least 20 distinct indigenous languages. In Bethel, Alaska, 63 percent of the community speaks a language other than English at home. In September 2007 the Language Interpreter Center (LIC) was formed as a collaborative, public-private organization dedicated to creating a pool of trained language interpreters for entities statewide to increase access to legal, social, educational, and medical services to Alaskans with limited English proficiency.
