The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) was signed into law in December 1971 by President Richard Nixon to stimulate economic development for the native communities of Alaska.

ANCSA authorized the formation of twelve regional corporations in the State of Alaska as well as a number of village corporations within each region. The Eyak Corporation was formed July 25, 1973 as a for-profit corporation under Alaska law pursuant to ANCSA to represent the Eyak village in Alaska’s Cordova area.
