Shareholder Responsibilities

When the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act passed, 13 Alaska Native regional corporations were created and each enrolled Alaska Native individual received 100 shares of stock in their regional and/or village corporation. These shares of stock represent ownership of the corporation.

Today, more than 9,000 shareholders own CIRI stock. With that stock ownership comes three important responsibilities:

  1. Keeping current records with the CIRI Shareholder Relations Department; 
  2. Voting in corporate elections; and
  3. Maintaining a valid, up-to-date Stock Will on file at CIRI.
