CCTHITA (Central Council
of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska) is the Tribal
Government representing over 24,000 Tlingit and Haida Indians worldwide.
We are a sovereign entity and have a government to government relationship
with the United States.
The Council's headquarters is in Juneau, Alaska but our commitment
to serving the Tlingit and Haida people extends throughout the
The history of the Central Council is intricately intertwined with
the struggle of the Native peoples of Southeast Alaska for equal
rights. Over 50 years ago the Council evolved out of the struggle
of our people to retain a way of life strongly based on subsistence.
That struggle included the rights of our people to claim lands
we had used from time immemorial, lands we were given no claim
to under the Western concept of land ownership.
When we are alone we are weak but together we are strong. You can
make a difference. Join hands with us as we seek a better day for
Tlingits, Haidas, and all indigenous people.
