About Us

The Sitka Tribe of Alaska (STA) is the federally recognized government for more than 4,500 enrolled Tribal Citizens, who are primarily of Tlingit, Haida, Aleut, and Tsimshian Heritage in the Sheet’ka area of Southeastern Alaska.

Our nine-person Council is composed of individuals elected by the Tribal Citizens. The Council supervises a General Manager hired by and serving at the will of the Council.

Prior to 1993, STA operated its basic services programs through Public Law 93-638 Indian Self- Determination Act contracts. Shortly thereafter, the Tribe entered a Self-Governance Compact (authorized by Public Law 100-472) and has since negotiated an annual funding agreement with the U.S. Government for general operations and provision of a variety of programs including employment rights, natural and cultural resource protection, higher and vocational education, domestic violence prevention, social services, and more.

STA employs an outside accounting firm to conduct an independent audit of each year’s transactions and holdings.
