Doyon, Limited is the Alaska Native regional corporation for Interior Alaska and was established on June 26, 1972, as a for-profit corporation pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA).

With more than 12.5 million acres of land in Alaska allocated to the corporation under ANCSA, Doyon is the largest private landholder in Alaska and one of the largest in North America. Headquartered in Fairbanks, Alaska and led by a 13-member board of directors, Doyon has more than 20,000 shareholders.
