Mt. Sanford Tribal Consortium (Kelt’aeni) is a tribal consortium of two federally recognized Tribal Councils of Chistochina and Mentasta Lake. The consortium was established on June 26, 1992 under a joint effort by Chistochina Village and Mentasta Village to advance and protect common interests of the descendants of the Upper Ahtna indigenous people.
We are the Taa’tl’aa Denaé (Headwater People) of Chistochina and Mentasta, Alaska. Our culture is rooted in thousands of years of tradition, family, and cooperation. Our lives are lived according to unwritten Indian laws and values learned as children.
Chistochina is located on the Tok Cutoff of the Glenn Highway, 42 miles northeast of Glennallen, the closest town with amenities. The village is surrounded by Sinona Creek, Boulder Creek, Chistochina River, and Copper River.
