Ours is a Village whose residents appreciate the freedom and health that come to us as a result of living in this peaceful, quite, subsistence community. Recreational opportunities are limitless. We are supported by a strong commercial fishing industry, and both private and tribally-owned businesses that provide job opportunities for every family. Our clean and beautiful natural environment, the slow pace, and a strong sense of community spirit provide our community a home that could only be found in Ugashik, Alaska.

Yup'ik Eskimos and Aleuts jointly occupied the area historically. This Aleut village was first recorded in 1880 as "Oogashik." In the 1890s, the Red Salmon Company developed a cannery, and Ugashik became one of the largest villages in the region. The 1919 flu epidemic decimated the population. The cannery has continued to operate under various owners. The Briggs Way Cannery opened in 1963. The village has a small year-round population.
The Ugashik-Peulik volcanic complex lies south of Becharof Lake and east of Upper Ugashik Lake. Late-Pleistocene caldera formation at Ugashik volcano was followed by the emplacement of at least 5 Holocene lava domes within the 4.5-km-wide caldera. Most of the caldera walls consist of basement sandstones of Jurassic age. Following caldera formation the small, 3 cu km Peulik stratovolcano grew 2.5 km to the north to a height of 1474 m, more than 500 m above that of Ugashik. Lava flows from Peulik cover the caldera rim to the south and extend to Becharof Lake, 6 km to the north. A small lava dome at 1200 m elevation on the east flank of Peulik was the source of a small block-and-ash flow. The summit of Peulik volcano contains a 1.5-km-wide crater breached to the west that is partially filled by a lava dome. Debris-avalanche deposits cover a 75 sq km area to the NW. A single documented historical eruption took place from Peulik volcano in 1814.

My name is Danny Pingree, I am currently on the UTVC and am running for an additional term. My mother was Mable Wickstom, my father was John Pingree Sr., my grandmother was Mable Condardy and has many living children who still reside and or fish in Ugashik Village. I grew up fishing with my mother starting at the age of 10, I worked alongside brothers and my sister every summer. When not fishing we spent our days playing on the beach and sliding down the grassy banks of Ugashik Village. After her passing in 2002, I continued fishing each year and still do. I have brought my family members and friends to help me each fishing season and currently continue to with my son and wife. I have not missed a salmon fishing season in Ugashik in over forty years. This is how I make my living and I have dedicated my life to it.
I am currently the Ugashik representative for Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation, I have held my seat for five years. I have worked on many projects over the past several years including rebuilding the dock, UTV community building and new clinic building just to name a few. I have a family home in Ugashik that I reside in during fishing season and throughout other times of the year. I am lucky enough that my son loves Ugashik Village as much as I do. He has fished by my side for 20+ years and has helped to take care of the many duties village life requires.Please consider me when you vote for UTVC, as I will hold Ugashik Village, it’s residence and all UTV’s members to the highest priority and their best interest.
My name is Daniel Pingree Jr., I currently serve on the UTVC and am running for an additional term. I am also the Ugashik Village representative for Bristol Bay Native Association. I live and work in Ugashik Village. I commercial fish each season with my Dad and will some day take it over. I also work for UTV throughout the year on various projects, filling in for the liaison, IGAP and anywhere else needed. In addition to checking up on the elders and helping with whatever needs to be done.
I consider Ugashik Village my home and plan to build my own place in the future. I am currently the youngest year-round resident. I am very proud of my heritage and Ugashik Village and want to continue to be a part of it’s growth and future.
Please vote for me in the upcoming UTVC election.
Daniel Pingree, Jr.
