Chugachmiut is the Tribal
consortium created to promote self-determination to
the seven Native communities of the Chugach Region.
We provide health and social services, education
and training, and technical assistance to the
Chugach Native people in a way which is acceptable
to Native cultural values and tradition in order to
enhance the well-being of our people by continuing
to strengthen the tribes and increase
self-determination opportunities for community
operated tribal programs.
Building on the inherent strength from our cultural values, Chugachmiut shall work to help member tribes achieve their chosen destiny.
