Census 2020

Native households are at risk of being under counted in the 2020 Census. Alaska Natives have been under counted for decades. Many programs that benefit the Native community are funded based on census-driven data. It is vital that Native households participate in the census.

An under count of our state in 2020 means Alaska will not receive its full share of federal funding for the next 10 years. In the face of increasing state and local budget constraints, we cannot afford an under count in 2020.

The Native American or Alaska Native in the home must be listed as head of household. Failure to do so will result in less funding for your community and programs such as Head Start, WIC, TANF, and SNAP!

Mission Statement

The Petersburg Indian Association is dedicated to promoting our native community through our cultural values, education and wellness, while creating a sustainable and diverse economy, cultivating leadership, strengthening families, and respecting our environment. 

Tribal Council Meetings are held the first Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Elizabeth Peratrovich Conference Room at PIA.

***Please Note that the fitness facilities are closed due to mandated COVID-19 prevention***

***Enrolled PIA Tribal Members are able to use Parks and Rec facilities at a discounted rate, as a way of promoting health and wellness among our community. This was made possible in 2020 from the Searhc Healthy is Here grant.

***PIA also has an in-house gym available for use by the entire community. It is free to use, but donations are appreciated! The gym is open during PIA business hours only.
