Doyon, Limited is the Alaska Native regional corporation for Interior Alaska. Doyon was established in June 1972 as a for-profit corporation pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA).
Under ANCSA, Doyon was allocated 12.5 million acres of land in the Alaskan Interior, making us one of the largest private landowners in Alaska. But it’s not the land that sets us apart. It’s our connection to that land. Inherited from our grandparents, our respect for the land mirrors our esteem for people—in particular, our more than 20,000 shareholders.
The majority of Doyon shareholders are of Athabascan descent. Many shareholders continue to live in rural villages within the Doyon region and maintain a traditional subsistence lifestyle, which depends on hunting, fishing, and trapping.
VISION: Leader In All We Do
MISSION: To continually enhance our position as a financially strong Native corporation in order to promote the economic and social well-being of our shareholders and future shareholders, to strengthen our Native way of life, and to protect and enhance our land and resources.

Social and cultural responsibility
Pride and respect in Native ownership
Commitment to long-term sustainability
Honesty and integrity
Commitment to excellence

Dena´ Nena´ Henash (Our Land Speaks)
The following is a preamble to Doyon’s Values:
The River ran through the lives of our grandparents; it runs through our lives; it will run through the lives of our grandchildren. A dynamic force masked by a static constancy, the River will speak to those who listen—our land speaks.
Doyon values its relationship to the Place of our people: to our land, our culture, our way of life. We value our Place as the historical successor to our grandparents’ ownership and stewardship of our land; as the fiduciary for our shareholders; as the trustee for our grandchildren’s inheritance. We are intimately, subtly and profoundly connected to our Place—our corporate values flow from this sense of Place.
