Our Story

HIA was a Tribal Government before Alaska was a state. In 1939 HIA was founded by a group of people whose conviction that the Huna Tlingit demanded a seat at the table with the US Government drove them to pursued Federally Recognized Status as a Sovereign Tribal Government. As part of this pursuit the tribe published its first constitution and by-laws. As years progressed HIA has worked to advocate for the needs of the community, provide essential services, and serve as a cultural hub for the tribe. As we move forward, we strive to continue to do everything within our power to be responsible stewards of land, sea, sky, and culture.
