About Us

The Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP) is a tribal consortium of 48 tribes in 56 Alaska native villages scattered across a 59,000 square mile region in remote western Alaska. AVCP advocates for self-determination, protection and life enhancement of the Yup’ik, Cup’ig and Cup’ik people of the AVCP region. AVCP provides a broad stream of social services, programs, technical assistance, training and advocacy to their people.

AVCP headquarters in Bethel, Alaska the regional hub of the Yukon and Kuskokwim deltas. Bethel is connected by air to the rest of Alaska, but every village in the AVCP region is remote; no roads connect villages together or to the rest of Alaska. All travel within the region is by small plane, ATV, boats during the ice-free part of summer and snow mobiles in winter.
