Akiachak Native Community (ANC) is a remote and traditional Yup’ik Alaska Native Village of 696 people located off the road system in Western Alaska. The river is part of the daily fishing and subsistence lifestyle; in the summer the people fish for Chinook salmon and in the winter they set nets under the ice.

Akiachak was the first city in Alaska to dissolve its city in favor of a tribal government. The IRA Council consists of five hard-working and involved members.
