K.l.C. is a federally recognized tribal government organized in 1939 under terms of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934. K.l.C. is involved in health, education and culture issues for Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people, along with other Alaska Natives. Northwest Coast-style eagle and raven panels outside the building were produced by Tlingit artist Ernie Smeltzer in 1983 with high school students.
