About Kodiak Area Native Association

KANA is the inter-tribal consortium of the federally recognized Alaska Native Villages and Indian Tribes in the Kodiak Island Area that have authorized KANA to receive their Alaska Tribal Health Compact funding. KANA was founded as an Alaska nonprofit corporation in 1966 by the Tribes of the Koniag Region. Following passage of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, Public Law 93-638, KANA greatly expanded its operations and now provides healthcare and community services, together with economic development activities, throughout the Kodiak Island Archipelago, including Kodiak and the outlying villages of Akhiok, Karluk, Larsen Bay, Old Harbor, Ouzinkie and Port Lions.

In alignment with its mission to elevate the quality of life of the people we serve, KANA received Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) status in 2013. KANA is dually funded by the Indian Health Service and the Health Resources and Services Administration to serve and prioritize the unique health needs of Alaska Natives, American Indians, and the Kodiak community. Additionally, KANA provides healthcare and other services for United States Coast Guard service members and their families, eligible military veterans, and all individuals in the outlying villages.

KANA’s team includes nearly 300 dedicated individuals providing services in 10 locations. Annual revenue approaches $50 million. In 2020, KANA served almost 5,000 unique patients and clients through its health and community services. Through its economic development efforts, KANA works to build robust and sustainable communities through a variety of activities including job creation, business development, and community infrastructure projects. KANA provides integrated services with a commitment to cultural values, high-quality care, and excellent customer service.
