With the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, Paug-Vik, Inc., Ltd. was given entitlement to approximately 130,000 acres of land surrounding the Naknek/King Salmon area, including land on the West Side of the Kvichak River. Below is a map of the lands that were designated as village selected lands.
5-acre Shareholder Program
Those who did not make a selection and/or paid lease and survey fees back in 1987 are not eligible to participate in the 5-acre shareholder program. Please see the General Manager for details on specific program requirements or to bring your account up to date.
Option A: Lease
This option is no longer available.
Option B: Purchase
Under this option, shareholders are eligible to purchase their 5-acre lease selections at fair market value. Terms may be negotiated, but will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Directors during their regular monthly meeting. Please see the General Manager if this is an option you would like to pursue.
Land Use Program
For those who are interested in using land for trapping, subsistence or recreational purposes, or professional guiding, please know that Paug-Vik has instituted a Land Use permitting system to allow for lawful entry upon village lands. Land Use Permits are good for one year and are available for sale from the Paug-Vik, Inc., Ltd. office in Naknek and from the Chinook Gift Shop in King Salmon. Trappers must secure a Trapping Access Permit prior to any trapping activity. No other commercial uses are allowed.
Land Leases and Sales
If you are interested in either leasing or purchasing Paug-Vik lands, please contact our General Manager and provide your preference for location, zoning, and intended use. We will respond to your request in a timely manner and do our best to accommodate your needs.
