Arctic Athabaskan Council
The Arctic Athabaskan Council was founded in 2000. At that time it represented approximately 32,000 indigenous peoples of Athabaskan descent. Today there are council members in Alaska (including fifteen traditional villages), the Yukon (the Council of Yukon First Nations) and the Northwest Territories (Dene Nation), spanning 76 communities and representing approximately 45,000 people.
AAC’s vision is to build community-to-community relationships, networks and partnerships to further Athabaskan cultural, social, economic and environmental interests on the international stage.
