Chisana
 

Chisana (also Shushanna) (Tsetsaan’ Na’ in Ahtna) is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Valdez-Cordova Census Area in the U.S. state of Alaska. As of the 2010 Census, the population of the CDP was 0.

The English name Chisana derives from the Ahtna Athabascan name Tsetsaan' Na', meaning literally 'copper river' (not to be confused with the river known in English as the Copper River).

In 1985, the community was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district, the Chisana Historic District.
