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.
Tourists fall in love with Alaska for its beautiful scenic views, but also its native history and art. Now, you can order that art online, and have it shipped right to your home. Items from the Village store are Alaskan made and crafted. You can take a bit of Alaska home now.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic brought us together in several different ways many did not expect. We made sure to react in ways that protected our Shareholders, employees, and customers, but also protected the future of the company.

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.
