The Cook Inlet region of southcentral Alaska represents Cook Inlet Tribal Council’s core service area. While the region approximates the traditional homeland of the Dena’ina Athabascan people, CITC participants reflect the diversity of all Alaska Native cultures. The region is served by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) regional Native Corporation Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI).
Native villages of the Cook Inlet region include Eklutna, Knik, Salamatof, Tyonek, Chickaloon, Ninilchik, Kenaitze and Seldovia. The region also includes non-federally recognized group sites of Alexander Creek, Caswell, Gold Creek, Montana Creek, and Point Possession.
