Joint Land Use Permit System
In 2004, Ouzinkie Native Corporation (ONC) joined with Afognak Native Corporation and Natives of Kodiak (NOK) to form the Joint Land Use Permit System. The lands administered under the Joint Land Use Permit System include land on Afognak Island, Kodiak Island, Raspberry Island, Spruce Island, and Whale Island as depicted on the attached land ownership map.
Protecting our lands from illegal trespass and abuse is the primary goal of the Land Use Permit System.
All users of Afognak, NOK, or ONC lands must acquire a land use permit.
Afognak, NOK and ONC appreciate your cooperation and respect for our lands. Successful and efficient implementation of our Joint Land Use System and compliance with our Joint Land Use Rules will facilitate the continued use and enjoyment of these private lands, now and into the future. Please call the ONC Ouzinkie office for more information on obtaining a Land Use Permit for Ouzinkie Land.
