The Aleut Corporation was incorporated in Alaska on June 21, 1972.[1] Headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, The Aleut Corporation is a for-profit corporation with approximately 3,410 Alaska Native shareholders[2] primarily of Aleut descent originating in the Alaska Peninsula, Aleutian Islands, Pribilof Islands, and Shumagin Islands of Alaska.[3]

Under ANCSA, The Aleut Corporation received a settlement of $19.5 million. Its land entitlement included 66,000 acres (270 km²) of surface lands and 1.572 million acres (6,362 km²) of subsurface estate.

Enterprises[edit]

TAC's primary business areas are in the areas of government contracting; telecommunications; environmental remediation; real estate management; trust management; sales of sand, gravel, mineral, and rock aggregates; and investments in oil and gas producing properties and marketable securities.
