About Afognak Native Corporation

Afognak Native Corporation (Afognak)Afognak Native Corporation (Afognak) is an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) formed under the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) and through the 1977 merger of two Alaska Native village corporations: Natives of Afognak, Inc. and Port Lions Native Corporation. Native corporation shareholders are those Alaska Natives who were alive on December 18, 1971, and have proven their lineage to the respective region and village. Congress termed ANC enrollees “shareholders,” although being an ANC shareholder is truly more comparable to a tribal membership – it is a lifetime enrollment that cannot be bought or sold.

Afognak Native Corporation (Afognak)

Afognak represents and serves over 1,000 plus Shareholders who are descended from the Village of Afognak. As an ANC, Afognak is committed to meeting its economic, social, and cultural obligations to its Shareholders. It does so through revenue received from Alutiiq, LLC and its subsidiaries.  By providing benefits to Shareholders and strengthening Ag’wanermiut, “our community,” the Shareholders are empowered and the culture and  heritage of  the Alutiiq people is preserved.
