The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) was formed in 1977 when ten ANCSA (Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act) village corporations located along the middle region of the Kuskokwim River merged. The villages include Lower Kalskag, Upper Kalskag, Aniak, Chuathbaluk, Napaimute, Crooked Creek, Red Devil, Georgetown, Sleetmute and Stony River.
TKC is the mother company of TKC Development, Inc. (TKCD)

As you may be aware, through the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), the Federal government conveyed to Alaska Native Corporations land and money to settle the aboriginal land claims of Alaska Native people. Congress directed the Department of the Interior to oversee the transfer of Federal lands to Alaska Native Corporations.

The Kuskokwim Corporation has over 3,100 shareholders (some shareholders hold class B and class A stock through inheritance) whom are bound together by a tradition rich in culture and history.
These shareholders consist primarily of Yupik Eskimos and Athabaskan Indians that are residents of, or descendants of residents, of ten villages along the Kuskokwim River.
