Chickaloon-Moose Creek Native Association (CMCNA) was officially incorporated on August 29, 1973. CMCNA was created under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) of 1971 and is a village corporation. CMCNA had forty-two (42) original shareholders, each having 100 shares of stock for a total of 4,200 shares. Due to death/inheritance and gifting of shares, there are now more than the original 42 shareholders, but the amount of stock remains the same. In order to be listed as one of the original 42 shareholders, you had to prove that you were at least 1/4 degree Alaska Native blood and came from Chickaloon Village as set forth in ANCSA. CMCNA has a seven (7) member Board of Directors and they meet several times a year. For more information, contact: Edith Baller, President & Chairperson, P.O.
