BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Kawerak Board consists of the Council Presidents or appointed delegates of the 20 federally recognized tribes, two Elder representatives and the chair of the Norton Sound Health Corporation Board.

When established as the regional nonprofit in 1973,  Kawerak’s vision was to provide services to the region and to preserve our cultures for the next generations. Thanks to the leadership and dedication of our Board of Directors, we are driven with that vision; we constantly look for new ways to ensure that our people and tribes are thriving now and in the future.
