100% Alaska Native Owned
WHPacific is a minority owned and operated business as certified by the National
Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). We are wholly owned by NANA Development
Corporation, which is the business arm of NANA Regional Corporation, Inc. (NANA)
NANA is a private for-profit corporation representing the interests of more than
12,000 Iñupiat shareholders who are descendants of the first people to populate
northwest Alaska over 10,000 years ago. NANA is one of 12 land-based Alaska Native
Corporations created under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971.
Because WHPacific is owned by Alaska Natives, we understand what it means to work
with distinctive cultures and traditions. Our remarkable success in Alaska has been
replicated to meet the development needs of indigenous groups elsewhere.
Balance and Harmony
Part of WHPacific’s mission is to honor and respect the values of our clients by
incorporating their culture, lifestyle, and artistry into contemporary facilities
that are balanced in harmony with the surrounding physical environment. One of WHPacific’s
strengths is our capability to provide culturally significant and relevant designs
to any client, emphasizing a personal involvement in all phases of the planning
and design process.
