The Calista Corporation is spearheading an effort to form a federally recognized regional Tribal government in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. The regional native corporation says that Tribes have requested the corporation’s support in this endeavor.

Other Alaska Native groups have already formed federally recognized regional Tribal governments, such as the Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Tribes of Alaska.

Oct. 3, 2016 - A leadership dispute is expected to be continued at a 3-day conference of the Association of Village Council Presidents kicking off in Bethel Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016. Protesting delegates plan to push their argument that the member villages are in charge of the regional nonprofit, not executive leadership. Protesters say the organization's executive board and their attorneys have hijacked authority from the tribes that created it decades ago to advocate for 56 Alaska Native communities.
