Sealaska shareholders are the driving purpose for Sealaska and our inspiration in all that we do. Every dollar we make and will ever make, goes towards benefiting shareholders either as a current year benefit or reinvested for future benefits.
Sealaska is the largest of 13 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) regional corporations with more than 22,000 shareholders. Following enactment of ANCSA in 1971, each Alaska Native that registered received 100 shares of stock in one of 12 ANCSA Corporations.
Sealaska originally enrolled 15,782 shareholders, who are predominantly Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian descent. Sealaska shareholders voted and approved in 2007 to issue life estate shares to eligible descendants of orignial shareholders. In 2007, shareholders also approved to issue life estate shares to "Leftouts", those who were originally elgible in 1971 to enroll but did not.
ANCSA stock is not publicly traded and ANCSA shares can not legally be sold.
