Alaska Native
Corporation History

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) was enacted in 1971. In preparation for the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, native land disputes are settled and Alaska is divided into 12 Regional Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs). Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC), an original regional corporation with corporate offices in Anchorage, Alaska was formed on December 18, 1971. Shareholders have opportunities for education assistance, dividend income, employment, and may transfer shares to immediate family. The Alaska Native lifestyle is one of isolation in more ways than literal village life. The 86,000 US citizens enrolled under ANCSA experience nonexistent economic opportunities, high unemployment, very high cost of living, and limited access to healthcare, education and training. Twenty-two percent of Alaska Natives live below the poverty line. Unemployment in the villages is five times the national average. Our shareholders desire the opportunity to take responsibility and earn fair wages.
