Ahtna Kanas Summer 2021

Shareholder Cabins

Last summer, the Ahtna Land Department and workers engaged through Ahtna’s village-based shareholder hire program constructed two recreational/subsistence cabins for shareholder use. The Middle Lake Cabin is located approximately 7 miles west of Sourdough and 2 miles north of Ewan Lake and is accessible either by float plane or ATV. This area was historically used by the Gulkana people for trapping and hunting. The Klawasi River Cabin has been named in honor of Roy S. Ewan and is located 20 miles northeast of Copper Center. It is accessible by either small fixed-wing aircraft or ATV on a trail constructed last year by the Native Village of Kluti-Kaah.

The Middle Lake and Roy S. Ewan (Klawasi River) cabins are 12X16 and outfitted with sleeping bunks, propane cook stoves, lanterns, pots and pans, and various tools. Users must provide their own sleeping bags, food and propane fuel.

Shareholders interested in using the cabins can contact the Ahtna Land Department to make a reservation:
