Balancing Protection of Cultural Resources with Management of Natural Resources
Gana-A’Yoo owns 438,000 acres of the lands located in and surrounding the villages we represent: Galena, Koyukuk, Nulato, and Kaltag.
As a steward of the land, the corporation strives to balance protection of cultural resources with management of natural resources. The land is managed to preserve important historic and cultural aspects of our Native heritage. Subsistence is the primary and highest-priority use of our lands.
Gana-A’Yoo lands are open to the public for short-term camping, not to exceed a period of five days. For camping longer than five days, a Seasonal Use Permit is required. Seasonal Use Permits are available to corporation shareholders and descendants. In the spirit of supporting healthy people, healthy families, and healthy communities, Gana-A’Yoo will make available a limited number of Seasonal Use Permits to non-shareholder residents as well.
