Far West Ventures Inc.(FWVI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Far West Inc. (FWI) which was formed after the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) in 1971. The principal office of FWI is located in the Alutiiq village of Chignik Bay (below) on the Alaska Peninsula approximately 450 air miles Southwest of Anchorage. FWVI's office is located in Anchorage at 3150 C St Suite 270 Anchorage, AK 99503.
The huge winds arising from the coastal storms at Chignik Bay inspired the Alutiiq people who lived here to name this village "Cihniq", which means means big wind in the Alutiiq language.
