About Our Ahtna Region

Copper River Native Association is located in the beautiful Copper River Basin, home of the Ahtna people. We are approximately 190 miles east of Anchorage in a region encompassing approximately 23,000 square miles. We have the Chugach National Forest to the south, the Alaska Range to the north, Wrangell Mountains of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve to the east, and the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountains to the west. The Copper River is 300 miles long, flows through the Copper Basin, and empties into the Gulf of Alaska. It is fed by 13 major tributaries, including the Klutina, the Gakona, and the Gulkana Rivers.
