Ours is a Village whose residents appreciate the freedom and health that come to us as a result of living in this peaceful, quite, subsistence community. Recreational opportunities are limitless. We are supported by a strong commercial fishing industry, and both private and tribally-owned businesses that provide job opportunities for every family. Our clean and beautiful natural environment, the slow pace, and a strong sense of community spirit provide our community a home that could only be found in Ugashik, Alaska.

Yup'ik Eskimos and Aleuts jointly occupied the area historically. This Aleut village was first recorded in 1880 as "Oogashik." In the 1890s, the Red Salmon Company developed a cannery, and Ugashik became one of the largest villages in the region. The 1919 flu epidemic decimated the population. The cannery has continued to operate under various owners. The Briggs Way Cannery opened in 1963. The village has a small year-round population.
The Ugashik-Peulik volcanic complex lies south of Becharof Lake and east of Upper Ugashik Lake. Late-Pleistocene caldera formation at Ugashik volcano was followed by the emplacement of at least 5 Holocene lava domes within the 4.5-km-wide caldera. Most of the caldera walls consist of basement sandstones of Jurassic age. Following caldera formation the small, 3 cu km Peulik stratovolcano grew 2.5 km to the north to a height of 1474 m, more than 500 m above that of Ugashik. Lava flows from Peulik cover the caldera rim to the south and extend to Becharof Lake, 6 km to the north. A small lava dome at 1200 m elevation on the east flank of Peulik was the source of a small block-and-ash flow. The summit of Peulik volcano contains a 1.5-km-wide crater breached to the west that is partially filled by a lava dome. Debris-avalanche deposits cover a 75 sq km area to the NW. A single documented historical eruption took place from Peulik volcano in 1814.

Hattie Enright Albecker - bio:
I was born in Ugashik, Alaska to Olga and Michael Enright. I have been married to Bill Albecker for more than 51 years; have one daughter, three grandchildren and 2 great grandsons. Bill and I both have set net permits and family operated sites in Ugashik. My family has commercially fished in Ugashik for several generations.
I have served on the Ugashik Traditional Village Council (UTVC) in a variety of capacities, and also serve on the Lake and Peninsula Borough Assembly and Planning Commission and the Board f the Bristol Bay Economic Development Corporation. I currently serve on the Ugashik Traditional Village Council, as the Council President. I have been active in the mentoring the younger members of the Ugashik Traditional Village Council, as well as the youth who come to the village each summer with their families.
I want to serve on the UTVC to further our village's goals of working to create programs and jobs that will improve the lives of Tribal Members and Ugashik Village residents. I will work to utilize our resources to create economic opportunities, keep our village environmentally safe now, and for our future generations.
I would appreciate your vote so I can continue to serve on the UTVC for another term.
Some major accomplishments during the time I have served on the UTVC and 14 years as Tribal Environmental Coordinator are the Village Landfill, a Hybrid Electrical system, a New Dock.
Julie Gaumond - bio:
My name is Julie Gaumond, I currently hold the office of Secretary of Ugashik Traditional Village Council and I'm running for my second term.
I have family roots in Ugashik and Bristol Bay and I am the daughter of George Pingree and Ida Wickstrom Pingree. My mother is a tribal elder and has been commercial fishing in Ugashik for the past 38 years. I have been her crewmember for almost 20 years. This year I'll be taking over her site via an emergency medical transfer and fishing the 2019 commercial fishing season in Ugashik.
As I am a self-employed software consultant, this allows me the flexibility to commercial fish and to dedicate the necessary time for council duties.
I enjoy being on the Ugashik Traditional Village Council and serving our village tribal members.
Thank you for your consideration
