Cazador is owned by Akima, LLC — a NANA Company. The NANA Development Corporation is an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) that represents the Iñupiat people of Northwest Alaska. NANA was formed as part of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) enacted by Congress. ANCSA intended to resolve the long-standing issue of aboriginal land claims in Alaska and to create a mechanism for economic development in Alaska, particularly in rural areas. It was Congress’ intent that Alaska Native people, the shareholders of private corporations created by the Act, would guide this development.
Why is this important?
NANA is 100% owned by the Iñupiat people of Northwest Alaska. Our 14,300 shareholders maintain cultural ties to the region their ancestors have inhabited for more than 10,000 years.
Cazador profits are invested in:
- Maximizing economic growth for the people of the NANA region via regional infrastructure development and annual dividend distribution
- Protecting and enhancing vital resources, ensuring that the land and environment can provide for our shareholders for many years to come
- Promoting healthy communities and supporting Iñupiat culture
- Improving education via scholarships and internships
- Providing vocational training and business leadership—thousands of shareholders are employed by NANA companies
