King Island Native Community

King Island Native Community was originally located on King Island in the Bering Straits, approximately 40 miles due south of Cape Prince of Wales and the village of Wales, or 80 miles northwest of Nome. The village site on King Island which is located on the south side facing Russia, is called Ukivok (OO-Q-Vok). In the early 1960’s, social and economic pressures and opportunities persuaded island residents to relocate to Nome.

Koyukuk Native Village

Koyukuk is a Koyukon Athabascan village located on the Yukon River near the mouth of the Koyukuk River, 30 miles west of Galena and 290 air miles west of Fairbanks. It lies adjacent to the Koyukuk National Wildlife Refuge and the Innoko National Wildlife Refuge.

Metlakatla Indian Community, Annette Island Reserve

The Metlakatla Indian Community resides on the Annette Island Reserve, the only Native Reservation in Alaska. Congress declared Annette Island a federal Indian reservation in 1891. The Metlakatla voted to opt out of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of the 1970s and retained rights to their land and waters.
