History

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.

Tribal Members

Programs

We have several programs specifically for tribal members:

AmeriCorps Hoopa Tribal Civilian Community Corps

There is no better time than right now to make a difference!  By serving as a member in the AmeriCorps "Tribal Civilian Community Corps (TCCC)".  Hoopa TCCCC is a tribal residential national service program for young Native men and women, between the ages of 18 - 24 years old.  The AmeriCorps Hoopa TCCC is now accepting applications for the 2017 program year.  The AmeriCorps Hoopla Tribal CCC Mission:  The mission of TCCC is to make a difference in our lives, improve the lives of others, and to positively change the environment of the communities we are serving. 

Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS) awards grants to programs that engage AmeriCorps members in an evidence based service interventions that result in a positive impact on identified community problems (e.g., based on proposed program’s performance and evaluation data or research demonstrating the effectiveness of a similar intervention). An AmeriCorps Member is an individual who engages in community service through an approved national service position. AmeriCorps Members may receive a living allowance and other benefits while serving. Upon successful completion of their service, members receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award from the National Service Trust that can be used to pay for college tuition, repayment of qualified student loans, and training at technical schools.

CNCS believes that all Americans should have opportunities to participate in national service, including those that have been traditionally underrepresented in national service, such as rural residents, people with disabilities, veterans and military families, Native Americans, and “Opportunity Youth-- the one in six young people (ages 16-24) who are disconnected from school or work.” CNCS recognizes that service can create powerful pathways to education and employment for these populations, transforming their communities and creating broad economic benefit for the country. National service benefits the recipients of service, those who serve, local communities, and our nation.

AmeriCorps State and National sets aside 1% of total grant funds to award grants to eligible federally recognized Indian tribes and tribal organizations.
