2020 Census: List of Federally Recognized Tribes in the Bering Strait Region

As you may know, the 2020 Census began here in Alaska on Jan. 21, 2020 in Toksook Bay. The Census is quick, important and confidential and takes about 10 minutes but the results determine how billons of federal dollars will be spent over the next 10 years.

If you’re Alaska Native, you can help our communities and families get our fair share of federal funding by answering a two-part question on the Census questionnaire. The first part asks you to identify your ‘race?’ If you check the ‘American Indian or Alaska Native’ box, the second question asks you to list your ‘tribal affiliation.’ You will then write in your tribe(s).

Here is the list of federally recognized tribes in the Bering Strait region:

Native Village of Brevig Mission
Native Village of Council
Native Village of Diomede (Inalik)
Native Village of Elim
Native Village of Gambell
Chinik Eskimo Community (Golovin)
