Albert M. Kookesh is a Democratic member of the Alaska Senate, representing the C District since 2005. Previously he was a member of the Alaska House of Representatives from 1997 through 2004.

Kookesh received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Washington in 1976 and is a commercial fisherman, also owning and operating a lodge and market. He is on the Board of Directors of the Sealaska Corporation. His earlier professional positions included Business Manager, Executive VP, and Acting President/CEO for Kootznoowoo Inc.

In 2010 a legislative review found Kookesh to be in violation of state ethics policies following allegations that he used political influence to keep a city council from opposing a lands bill pushed by the Native corporation by which he is employed.[1]
