Why We Do It

Respect for Haa Shuká - our past, present and future - and a deep-seated sense of responsibility for preserving and enhancing our culture, our land and the capacity and well-being of our people. 

The entire reason Sealaska and its subsidiaries exist is to create economic opportunities and stability for our Alaskan Native shareholders. Our earnings have a direct positive impact on the lives of the more than 22,000 Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people of southeast Alaska who own Sealaska. 

Sealaska's purpose is to strengthen our people, culture and homelands. Sealaska is a Native institution owned by more than 22,000 shareholders whose core Native values guide all that Sealaska does and represent the rich heritage of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people of southeast Alaska.
