Choggiung Limited is a village corporation formed under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). Owned by its shareholders, Choggiung is the largest village corporation in the Bristol Bay region. Choggiung’s family of shareholders has grown from its initial enrollment of 1,049 to more than 2100 as a result of inheritance and gifting.

We are Yup’ik and Aleut people with ancestral ties to this unique land, known for its abundance of salmon, in Southwest Alaska for thousands of years. Choggiung derived its name from “Curyung”, a Yup’ik word loosely translated as the point where the clean and muddy waters meet. This was the name given to the point of land, later known as Dillingham, which provided access to both the Wood and Nushagak Rivers.

Headquartered in Dillingham, Alaska, Choggiung and its subsidiaries are involved in commercial and residential leasing, hotel operations (Bristol Inn), restaurant operations (Bayside Diner), fire protection services (Inland Empire Fire Protection), gravel and rock sales, and land leasing and 8(a) government contracting (Umyuaq Technology, LLC).
