Enroll Today – Who Is Eligible
Sealaska has a perpetual enrollment for life estate stock (class “D”, “L” and “E”) with no closing date

When Sealaska was established under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), 15,782 people enrolled with Sealaska and are often called “original” shareholders. Each original shareholder received 100 shares of class “A”, “B” or “C” stock (read more about all classes of Sealaska stock at this link).

In 2007, Sealaska shareholders voted and approved to issue “life estate” shares to eligible descendants and leftouts. Life estate stock cease to exist upon the shareholders death. Eligibility for class “D” or “L” stock includes:

  1. ¼ blood quantum.
  2. A lineal descendant of a Sealaska shareholder or eligible to enroll in 1971.
  3. Not enrolled with another ANSCA corporation (if you were gifted or inherited shares this does not hinder you from applying for class “D” or” “L” stock).
