Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) was established in 1973 representing the village of Saxman.
Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) was founded almost 50 years ago as a result of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). CFC is the Alaska Native Corporation for the Village of Saxman, Alaska. For nearly three decades, we generated revenue primarily by harvesting timber. However, as the timber industry declined, we learned to adapt in order to continue to thrive. We changed our business focus to hospitality and tourism, real estate, and federal contracting. CFC now has several successful, thriving commercial businesses, and a growing federal contracting group. We have almost 400 Shareholders and over 700 employees worldwide and, in an effort to maintain what our heritage means to us, we make sure we are giving back within those communities.
The Cape Fox Communications Team has had a remarkable year of recognition and they are delighted to add another win to the list. MarCom Award winners for 2021 were announced, and the Cape Fox Communications Team won two awards and two honorable mentions! The MarCom Awards are prestigious awards given to marketing and communications professionals who have stood out for their creative excellence and Cape Fox is proud to be recognized for having an award-winning communications team.
The first official day of winter is December 21st, and it arrived big in Alaska with a snowstorm. But, snow, rain, or ice cannot stop the spirit of caring during the holidays. Through its Cape Fox Cares Program, Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) set out once again to ensure that our community felt the spirit of caring. Volunteers from Cape Fox Lodge (CFL) and CFC gathered to brave the snow and provide the Saxman community with the gift of food this holiday season so everyone could enjoy a holiday family meal.
Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) has employees and Shareholders who are on the front lines of the fight over COVID-19. This year for our CFC Shareholder Spotlight, we are recognizing one of the Shareholders on those front lines, Jennifer Tavares. Jennifer Tavares actually began her career as a pre-school teacher. However, throughout her life, she had a passion for medicine and healthcare. Her husband helped her realize that instead of teaching and caring for young kids, she could expand her skills and do something she loved. So, Jennifer took a leap in her life to do something for which she was passionate, healthcare.
23,040 Acres in the Tongass Rainforest
It is our Tlingit Natives who define us as people and it is the unique beauty of our ancestral lands that hold much of our history.
The 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCA) is the largest land settlement made by the US Government in US history. In accordance with ANSCA, the US Government declared approximately 44 million acres (and $962.5 million) of traditional homelands be returned to Alaska Natives. When CFC was created, we received 23,040 acres of land. Our maintained lands offer unique beauty, wildlife, and resources along Southeast Alaska you cannot find elsewhere. Our lands sit along the coast within the Tongass National Forest which provides trails for hiking, a network of roads to view the coastal line deeper, and excellent sources for subsistence lifestyles.
