In order to truly understand who we are as an organization, it is important to understand where we came from. Our history is an important story that explains how we came to be and why we do the work that we do.
Our region covers an area of 235,000 square miles in interior Alaska, an area equal to about 37 percent of the entire state, and just slightly smaller than the state of Texas. Within this area are six sub-regions and 42 member tribes.
We are organized as Dena’ Nena’ Henash or “Our Land Speaks”; an Alaska Native non-profit corporation, charged with advancing Tribal self-determination and enhancing regional Native unity.
Our organization works under the leadership and guidance of our Full Board of Directors, Executive Board, Health Board, and Traditional Chiefs. They play an important role in shaping the organization and keeping us focused on the vision for our people.
Learn more about some of the exciting announcements and events happening with our organization by visiting our press room. Feel free to contact us if you would like to be added to a mailing list to receive any TCC Press Releases.
The Council Newsletter is a monthly publication designed to keep our tribal members informed and up to date.
