The Central Aleutians Upland Archaeological Project used film and social networking to reach educator and public audiences. A series of short education films were created for Alaska public schools through consultation with school districts, Alaska Native corporations, tribes, and archaeologists. The consulted parties wanted Alaskan youth inspired to pursue anthropology, feature a role model Alaska Native college student, and use of Unangam Tunuu in the films. Social networking was approached with educational goals that were tested through an online anonymous survey. The Facebook member survey had a 23.5% response. The questions with the most incorrect answers were answered correctly 72.4% of the time with most questions being answered correctly 100% of the time. Facebook had 61.8% female members and YouTube had 70.5% male members from countries all over the world. The goal of creating relevant public archaeology content that inspired and educated Alaskan youth and the general public was met.
