Tatitlek at 50

Fifty years ago, the Tatitlek Corporation was incorporated on Oct. 25, 1973. This milestone marks the collective success of TTC’s past and present leadership’s perseverance to accomplish our mission: to bridge the traditions of our village with global economic opportunity enhancing the quality of life for our people. Since then, TTC has grown into a multi-million-dollar enterprise, providing millions of dollars in dividends, elder distributions, burial assistance, scholarships, and lands and cultural preservation programs to our shareholders and descendants. 

TTC’s success is also rooted in our close-knit and powerful relationship with the Native Village of Tatitlek. This relationship strives to preserve, enhance and promote our rich culture.

This fall, TTC will celebrate the resilience of our people, our families, our lands, and our Corporation. Please stay tuned for more details, and we look forward to seeing you at the event.

While our past is complex and spans thousands of years, this video series explores the strength we take from our traditional roots, our Corporation’s success due to our board of directors’ vision and strategy and the importance of our future generations. Watch on to see Tatitlek at Fifty: Honoring past, presenting and future generations:

Tatitlek at Fifty: Past

Our people are resilient and strong. We have been here for more than 5,000 years and despite devastating events including the relocation of the Village, 1964 earthquake, Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, we maintain a strong connection to the land and a subsistence lifestyle.

Tatitlek at Fifty: Present

Our board of directors integrates traditional values into the Corporation’s business functions, strategy and operations. TTC’s success is due to the SBA 8(a) program, hiring qualified employees and shareholders, and is parlayed into the shareholder community to improve the lives of our people.

Tatitlek at Fifty: Future

Our youth are our future. When rooted in our cultural traditions and supported by the success of the Corporation, we are empowered. We belong here, we should be proud of who are and we need to ensure our heritage is passed to future generations.
