Goldbelt - the company and its shareholders
Goldbelt, Incorporated is an urban Alaska Native, for‐profit corporation headquartered in Juneau, Alaska. Incorporated on January 4, 1974 following the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), Goldbelt’s primary mission is to manage assets and conduct business for the benefit of its more than 3,600 shareholders. Goldbelt first ventured into the logging and timber industry but later expanded its operations into tourism, which still remains an integral part of its operations. Today, the majority of Goldbelt’s revenue and income derives from government contracting and services. Goldbelt’s shareholders are primarily Alaska Natives of Tlingit Indian descent. The Tlingit people’s rich history spans more than ten thousand years in Southeast Alaska. Goldbelt seeks to honor and preserve the Tlingit culture - its history, art, dance, legends, and the traditions of its Alaska Native shareholders.
