Chenega Bay

Located in beautiful Prince William Sound, Chenega Bay was first settled by the Alutiiq tribe in the mid nineteenth century. The small village was almost completely devastated by the great earthquake of 1964 and the powerful tsunamis that followed. The village was moved to Evans Island in the 198s, but it retains its original name.

This small native community is centered around subsistence hunting and fishing. Some find employment in commercial fishing as well, but job opportunities are scarce in this tiny community. In recent years the population has been reduced dramatically, due to residents relocating to towns with stronger economies.
