Job Description


Between 1964 and 1972, Ahtna Taene Nenes leaders began building a solid foundation from which to provide much needed services and resources to the Ahtna people. In 1972, Copper River Native Association was formally incorporated as a non-profit organization, one year following the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). Shortly after CRNAs incorporation, four programs were established: Senior Citizen Transportation, Johnson OMalley Bicultural/Bilingual program, Alcohol Treatment and Education, and Early Childhood Development.

Over the years, we have expanded to offer additional services and continue to serve the Copper Valley community with respect to our past and excitement for our future.
