“Land is the gift of our ancestors and the guarantee of our right to continue our subsistence lifestyle. Land is the heart of our culture. Without land, we are nothing.”

– Harvey Samuelsen 1926 – 2004

BBNC came into being as a for-profit corporation after the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act was signed into law in 1971. BBNC’s founders leveraged their reverence for the land and culture of the Bristol Bay region to create a diversified enterprise that, once it began, has never stopped contributing to Alaska’s economy.
