Doyon, Limited is one of twelve Alaska Native regional corporations established by Congress under the terms of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) in 1971. Established on June 26, 1972, as a for-profit corporation pursuant to the ANCSA of 1971. ANCSA addressed the aboriginal claim to the land by Alaska Native people by mandating the formation of for-profit corporations representing different regions of the state.

With more than 12.5 million acres of land in Alaska allocated to the corporation under ANCSA, Doyon is the largest private landholder in Alaska and one of the largest in North America.

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.

Doyon operates a diverse family of companies, including more than a dozen for-profit companies across the nation.

Officers and directors

Doyon is led by a 13-member Board of Directors who are elected by shareholders. Elections are held during the Annual Shareholders Meeting.

The Doyon articles of incorporation contain a formula that determines the number of Board seats that must be held by a rural directors. Rural directors are defined as shareholders who reside within the Doyon/Tanana Chiefs Conference region but outside of the Fairbanks North Star Borough. Currently, rural directors must hold 20 percent of the 13 Board, or a minimum of three seats. Shareholders may elect any number of rural directors at any time.

Notable members include Emil Notti, key developer of ANCSA, past President of Doyon and AFN; Morris Thompson, past President of Doyon; Mary Jane Fate, a founding member of Fairbanks Native Association and Institute for Alaska Native Arts, a lobbyist for ANCSA; and Poldine Carlo, a founding member of Fairbanks Native Association.

A current listing of Doyon, Limited's officers and directors, as well as documents filed with the State of Alaska since Doyon's incorporation, are available online through the Corporations Database of the Division of Corporations, Business & Professional Licensing, Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.[1]


At incorporation, Doyon, Limited enrolled 9,061 Alaska Native shareholders,[2][3] each of whom received 100 shares of Doyon stock. A 1989 amendment to ANCSA granted regional corporations the right to enroll qualified Natives born after 1971, and in March 1992 Doyon shareholders voted to give stock to Native children born between 1971 and 1992, adding 5,487 additional shareholders to Doyon's rolls,[3] bringing the total number of shareholders to over 14,000.[2][3] Shareholders at that time also voted to give an additional 100 shares of stock to 646 elders who had reached age 65 by December 1992.[3]

At the 2007 annual shareholder meeting in March 2007, Doyon shareholders voted to extend enrollment to eligible descendants of original Doyon shareholders who were born after 1992, and also to give additional shares of stock to elders who turned age 65 after 1992.[4] This will result in a potential additional enrollment of about 5,925 children by 2011; an estimated 1,227 elders who will turn age 65 by 2011 will also receive additional shares of Doyon stock.[3]

As an ANCSA corporation, Doyon has no publicly traded stock and its shares cannot legally be sold.


Doyon's land entitlement under ANCSA is about 12.5 million acres (50,600 km²), making Doyon the largest private landholder in Alaska and among the largest private landowners in North America. The Doyon region encompasses a vast region in Interior Alaska, from Brooks Range in the north to the Alaska Range, and from Alaska's border with Canada in the east extending westward nearly to the shores of Norton Sound. As of March 2007, about 9.8 million acres (40,000 km²) have been conveyed, including 6.6 million acres (27,000 km²) in surface and subsurface estate (fee Owned) and 3.2 million acres (13,000 km²) of subsurface estate corresponding to surface estate owned by villages corporations in the Doyon region.
