The use of CIRI lands requires an approved permit. Please complete and return the permit request.


Every person with a CIRI land use permit is required to submit a report at the end of their permitted access dates.


Update to Recreational Use Permitting Policy (April 2021)
While anyone accessing CIRI land must have a permit, members of the general public will now be charged an administrative fee. Administrative fees do not apply to CIRI Shareholders and Descendants.

One of CIRI’s corporate values is respect, which includes respect for the land and promoting responsible stewardship of CIRI resources. The company prioritizes the use of its land by Shareholders and Descendants for cultural, subsistence and recreational activities. When the activities are consistent with CIRI values, the company may also provide access opportunities to the general public.

  • Everyone who wishes to access CIRI land, including Shareholders and Descendants, must have a recreational use permit.
  • Members of the general public who apply for recreational use permits will now be charged an administrative fee. Fees do NOT apply to CIRI Shareholders and Descendants.

Like many rural properties, CIRI land is vulnerable to trespass. Trespass activities run the gamut, from recreational and vehicular trespass to timber harvesting and illegal camping. If you observe trespass activity, gather as much information as you safely can—including time and date of the suspected violation, identifying features of the suspect or vehicle, and location and description of the violation—and report back to CIRI by emailing [email protected] or calling (907) 274-8638 and leaving a message. (For your protection, do not attempt to confront trespassers.)

If you have questions regarding CIRI’s recreational use permitting policy or any questions for the CIRI Land and Resources department, email [email protected].

Land Use

Potential users may access CIRI land on a limited basis with written permission. Guides, hunters and anglers, campers, tour operators, photographers, scientists, dog mushers and other outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to respect CIRI land and contact the CIRI Land and Resources Department to learn more about land use policies.

Permitting is required for all CIRI land use.

Unauthorized use of CIRI land is prohibited and trespassing is prosecuted to the full extent of the law. CIRI advertises and posts warnings about the location of its private lands. Land inspections of CIRI land are conducted on a regular basis to prevent unauthorized use.

Some of CIRI’s land parcels are adjacent to village lands. If you wish to use village corporation lands, contact the appropriate village representative directly.
