Koniag’s Land Use Permit System


Thank you for your interest in visiting Koniag’s lands. Our permitting program gives you the ability to experience our ancestral lands without damaging the pristine habitat or unparalleled wilderness character that make them so great.

Unguided users are required to obtain and carry a Land Use Permit, available online or at Koniag’s offices in Kodiak or Anchorage. The Land Use Permits are valid for one calendar year. Afognak Island, Womens Bay, and parts of Karluk Lake and River are available to permit holders.  Please refer to the Land Use Permit application for details regarding the terms and conditions of this conditional-use permit.

Guided users are also required to obtain a Land Use Permit, which is available at Koniag’s office in Kodiak. Guided Land Use Permits are only valid for one guided trip to Koniag’s land, and your guide must have a valid Commercial Use Permit. Please refer to the Land Use Permit application for details regarding the terms and conditions of this conditional-use permit.

The cost of Unguided and Guided Land Use Permits include endorsements for fishing, berry picking, small game/waterfowl hunting, and non-commercial filming/still photography. Other use endorsements, such as access for bear, deer, or goat hunting can be purchased for an additional cost.
