Native Village of Eyak

10,000 years in our homeland

About us

Native Village of Eyak is a federally recognized tribal government located on the southeastern shores of Prince William sound in the North Gulf Coast of Alaska.

Our territory is the traditional meeting place of four peoples, the Eyak, Aleut, Tlingit and Athabascan.  Prince William Sound, Copper River Delta and the North Gulf Coast were shared between them. War and peace reigned alternately within a brisk trading business. The arrival of the Russians and subsequently Americans, greatly impacted our way of life and culture. We strive to preserve and restore that culture through our many programs and services.

We are governed by a five member elected Council who upholds our constitution and bylaws and directs an executive director to implement projects and programs according to an approved   strategic plan.
