Moving Forward to Preserve a Way of Life
MTNT, Ltd., was formed in 1976 and represents four Alaskan villages; McGrath, Takotna, Nikolai, and Telida, three of which are on the Iditarod Trail. Our people, primarily of Athabascan descent, are located in the Kuskokwim River Basin. Our villages own and manage 299,520 acres of land, commercial and residential properties, and a utility plant, along with several subsidiaries serving our nation’s government.
In addition to being proud Alaska Native people interested in preserving our culture, we are defense contractors. We provide personnel and services to commercial entities and federal agencies requiring our expertise. Our capabilities include development, construction, construction management, design, quality control, budgeting, scheduling, subcontractor selection, environmental, IT, strategic communication, professional staffing, and federal contracting expertise.
We embrace a dual vision on behalf of Shareholders: developing a prosperous business while retaining ties to our culture and our past.
The headquarters of MTNT, Ltd., is located in McGrath, Alaska, just west of Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America. In the Athabascan language, Denali translates into “The Great One.” It is in our remote villages, with little available infrastructure, that we practice the Native traditions of subsistence living, strengthening our family ties, and passing our knowledge from one generation to the next.
