GYL is an Alaska Native-Owned Village Corporation serving its more than 2,000 Native shareholders and four villages located along the Yukon River. Alaska Native Corporations are the result of the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, which was signed into law in 1971. The act was intended to resolve long-standing issues surrounding aboriginal land claims, to stimulate economic development throughout Alaska, as well as to settle land and financial claims.

As a historically nomadic people who relied on each other, the concept of sharing is essential in Athabascan tradition. For thousands of years small groups would band together to share resources, helping to ensure both the success and survival of the group. In the Koyukon Athabaskan language, Gana-A'Yoo means "friends together," which is reflected in our logomark's firm arm grip and the value we place on building long-term relationships.

This was the underlying sentiment in 1978 when the shareholders of the villages of Galena, Koyukuk, Nulato and Kaltag made the decision to join together as "friends" and merge into one for-profit village corporation. The company has strong social and cultural ties to its villages and is committed to meeting its economic, social, and cultural obligations to its shareholders.


GYL is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment, without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, religious beliefs, age, disability, U.S veteran status, or any other legally protected characteristics.
