There was no point in time where Alaska gained independence. The United States bought Alaska from Russia in 1867, and it became a territory of the US. On January 3, 1959, Alaska was granted statehood.

When did Alaska gain its independence?

Alaska is not and has never been independent. When discovered by Europeans it became a Russian Colony. Russia sold its North American interests to the US in 1867 and it languished as a so called district or department until it achieved Territorial status in 1912, It was granted statehood in 1959. There is an independence movement in Alaska that has legal and political status, but if or how it intends ti achieve that goal is unclear.
