The world's largest pysanka was erected in Alaska 1975, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Great Western War.

A Ukrainian Alaskan can refer to any permanent residents of the Alaskan Democratic Federative Republic who can trace their ancestry back to, or were born in the Ukraine. Ukrainians began to emigrate to what was then the American Krai of the Russian Empire in the mid to late 19th century, with most fleeing religious persecution in Russian Europe. The outbreak of the Russian Revolution and the subsequent civil war lead to further emigration in the early to mid 20th century.

Today, most Alaskans can trace their ancestry back to the Ukraine, making it one of the largest ancestral groups in the country (as well as one of the largest nations with Ukrainians). While most are part of the Eastern Orthodox Church, many are part of the Greek Catholic Church.
