About Us

The Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP) is a tribal consortium of 56 Alaska Native Villages and is one of the original 13 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) regions. Originally formed to facilitate the settlement of aboriginal land claims, AVCP has grown to be a regional, non-profit Alaska Native organization that advocates for self-determination and the protection and enhancement of the Yup’ik, Cup’ig and Cup’ik people of the AVCP region. Today, AVCP provides a broad stream of social services, programs, technical assistance, training and advocacy to the 56 Alaska Native Villages / Federally-Recognized Indian Tribes scattered over a 59,000 square mile region in remote western Alaska. AVCP is located in Bethel, Alaska, the regional hub of the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta. Every village in the AVCP region is remote; no roads connect villages together or to the rest of Alaska. All travel is by boat during the short, ice-free part of summer or by small plane.
