Our heritage is a blend of Aleut, Yupik, Alutiiq and Athabascan peoples. In the 1850′s Russian traders moved Aleuts and Alutiiqs from their homelands to a new fur buying/trading post established at Seldovia Bay, joining the Dena’ina (Athabascan) peoples that already inhabited the area. Following the American purchase of Alaska the official Russians moved away. Additional Native peoples and Northern Europeans came to Seldovia drawn by the rich marine resources. In the following hundred years, these peoples of Seldovia continued to coalesce as one united Tribe – always led by one accepted chief.

The unique strengths of these blended cultures today is demonstrated by the Seldovia Village Tribe, and through its members – many who are leaders in the Alaska Native Village and Regional Corporations and the Alaska Native Health Care services, as well as other areas.

The Seldovia Village Tribe is comprised of:

Tribal Government Operations and Community Programs: Environmental Protection, Drug and Alcohol Prevention, Behavioral Health/Alcohol Counseling, Elder Services, Housing, Community Health, Food Bank, Fire Department, Injury Prevention, and Children Services/Playgroup.

The Seldovia Village Tribe owns and operates:

SVT Health & Wellness: medical and dental services in Homer, Seldovia, and Anchor Point; The Seldovia Visitor Center & Museum; The Seldovia Conference Center: a waterfront, 2500 square foot event center; The Seldovia Bay Ferry: via M/V Kachemak Voyager, with service to Homer and Seldovia; The Alaska Tribal Cache Gift Store, and Alaska Pure Berry: manufacturing and sales of local wildberry products.
