Many people in Alaska refer to themselves as Native or Alaska Native or by 
their tribal affiliation ( e.g. - Alutiiq, Yupik), village - (e.g. Old 
Harbor, St. Paul), or ANCSA corporation membership - (e.g. Koniag, 
SEAlaska).  Each person is an individual and has a personal preference for 
how they introduce themselves.
