Values we Live By

With instruction and support from our elders, coworkers and peers, we must teach each other our Yup’ik Values to guide us and solve our complex modern challenges. We serve our native village of Akiak as a trusted partner that can innovate and implement solutions and share the vision to achieve and maintain an enriching, cultural identity, economic self-reliance and strong tribal government. 


We not only share with one another, but with the world so as to recognize and acknowledge the interconnectedness of the universe. We share our profits with our community to build a richer future for all our citizens.  


Through the wisdom of our elders, we learn through observation, experimentation and reflection to support our families and communities. Our approach is driven by example by displaying a strong work ethic and working together. 


The Yupiaq worldview is premised on cooperation between the human and natural worlds, adapting to the circadian rhythm of the universe. Mutual support shapes the way we see the world. 


In our Yupiaq worldview there is no need to separate the things of earth into living versus nonliving. The earth is sacred, and the way we genuinely live should do no harm to Mother earth.




Our Core Values

We are responsible for the survival of Yup’ik history, language and spirituality. We promote Yup’ik values through education, teaching and living our  Yup’ik ways.
