Property Ownership

Both men and women are heads of households in the two communities and are also likely to be property owners. This refers only to homes and not to land, however. As a result of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971, tribal land is owned in common as shares. Thus no individual owns the land on which his or her house sits. Homes can and are passed on to children and grandchildren. Overall, more men in their roles as husbands own homes than women. When a husband dies, his wife assumes ownership, suggesting that homes are essentially joint property. Men and women are each likely to have ownership of other valuable goods such as snowmobiles and allterrain vehicles, while hunting-specific equipment belongs to men and equipment needed for sewing, household management, and management of game, once it has been delivered to the home, belongs to women.
