Native Village of Eyak
About The Native Village of Eyak
Officially formalized in 1980, the Native Village of Eyak (NVE) is a Federally Recognized Tribal Government that promotes self-determination to its Tribal Members through the conservation of their homelands and preservation of their heritage and culture.
The Village is nestled in the Chugach Mountains bordered by the Prince William Sound and the Copper River Delta’s waters located on the Gulf of Alaska. This land has been home to the Eyak, Alutiiq, Aleut, Tlingit, and Athabascan peoples for over 10,000 years. NVE is a diverse and dynamic union of many Native peoples united as a prosperous, sovereign, and independent nation.
Guided by the Copper River Management Company Board of Directors, and supported by our administrative services company, Copper River Shared Services, the Copper River Family of Companies serves the mission of diversifying NVE’s ability to facilitate economic development, land conservation, and preservation of their heritage. Income generated by our companies helps NVE to fund critical health and social services, natural resource/environmental education, jobs, job training, and other benefits in a manner that is consistent with Alaskan Native cultural values and traditions.
