Alutiiq, LLC’s parent corporation, Afognak Native Corporation, represents and serves over 900 Native Shareholders who are descended specifically from the Village of Afognak. As an Alaska Native Corporation, Afognak Native Corporation is responsible for meeting economic, social, and cultural obligations to its Shareholders. It accomplishes this by using revenue from Alutiiq, LLC and their subsidiaries to provide benefits to individual Shareholders and strengthen Ag’wanermiut, “our community.” It is important that these two areas co-exist because by unifying Ag’wanermiut, the companies develop a collective strength, and by providing benefits to individual Shareholders, Afognak Native Corporation empowers every Shareholder.
As an Alaska Native Corporation, it is Afognak Native Corporation’s responsibility to empower its Shareholders through access to tools, resources, and support, to be the very best in whatever they chose to be. Whether the Shareholders choose to work for Afognak Native Corporation or pursue careers in other areas, it is a success. To this end, Afognak Native Corporation has several comprehensive Shareholder development programs that target high school students, college students, adults in career transitions, current and future employees, and small business owners. On a quarterly basis, the company’s executive team is provided a report detailing the status of each program, including measurable results.
