Sealaska’s leadership team takes our responsibility to our 26,000 shareholders incredibly seriously. Our obligation to them extends beyond the legal and financial requirements, we are obligated to them as family. All of us are part of the greater community of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people with ancestral ties to Southeast Alaska.

One of our core values as a people is the concept of Haa Aani ­– this is our commitment to care for the oceans and lands because they have always been, and always will be, the foundation of our people.

We are humbled to be in a position to live out our true cultural identities and values through our work while generating profits that will help sustain our people and communities for generations to come.
