The Yukon Kuskokwim Regional Tribal Government (YK RTG) is a constitutional government formed on February 22, 2021 to unite the 56 Tribal governments in the YK Region.
Calista Corporation has supported the concept of forming a regional tribal government for many years, and has provided administrative assistance to the YK RTG in its formative and development stages.
“For decades Tribes have discussed creating a regional tribal government (RTG). The earliest discussions by Elders occurred prior to ANCSA. It is not an accident that our Elders began this effort considering the knowledge they had of our history and especially the strength all our people and villages have when they are working together.” — Robert Beans, Calista Corp. Chair, March/April 2021 Storyknife
