Anaktuvuk Pass, Alaska
Anaktuvuk Pass (Map) is a remote village located within the Park and Preserve boundaries. It was established along a major caribou migration route in the early 1950s by the last remaining band of semi-nomadic Nunamiut Eskimo.
Even today, the residents continue to depend on caribou and other natural resources for food, clothing and cultural continuity.
