Sealaska Corporation’s land access policy establishes who has access to our lands and for what purposes. This policy applies to the Corporation’s shareholders, shareholder spouses, shareholder families, shareholder guests and all non-shareholders who desire access to Sealaska property.
Shareholder Access Sealaska shareholders, shareholder spouses and shareholder families have unrestricted access to subsistence hunt, gather and fish, to visit cultural, burial and cemetery sites, and for other non-consumptive uses. Restrictions may occur when commercial activities, such as timber harvest or mining, create health or safety issues. Guests of shareholders, when accompanied by shareholders, are also granted unrestricted access. However, guests of shareholders may not conduct subsistence hunting activities without authorization. All activities must be consistent with state and federal laws.
Shareholders are not expected to notify Sealaska of land access unless they are requesting to use land for commercial purposes, or they are requesting to use land where industrial activities or improvements pose a risk to shareholders. Sealaska will notify shareholders annually of any usage restrictions.
Commercial and Non-Shareholder Access Access and usage of Sealaska Corporation property for any commercial use and for any non-shareholders requires prior written authorization. When authorization is granted, Sealaska will place necessary conditions to protect all natural and cultural resources and the safety of those using our property. Sealaska is not obligated to provide access to non-shareholders and may deny access to our property at our discretion.
