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 was 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.
NANA is 100% owned by the Iñupiat people of Northwest Alaska. Our 12,000 shareholders maintain cultural ties to the region their ancestors have inhabited for more than 10,000 years.
