In 2024, we celebrate our 50th anniversary! We are proud of the collective dedication and achievements that have shaped Chugachmiut into what it is today. From humble beginnings as a tribal consortium focused on health and social services, we have expanded our reach into culture, language preservation, economic development, and education. Our milestones underscore the commitment of our team and the steadfast support of the seven Native tribes in the Chugach Region. Our strides in healthcare, behavioral health, and economic development reflect our unwavering commitment to serving the Chugach region with integrity and compassion.

Join us as we reflect on the past 50 years with this commemorative video and booklet
