Teller is located on a spit between Port Clarence and Grantley Harbor on the Seward Peninsula. Teller is a traditional Kawerak Eskimo village with a population of around 250. Most residents depend on subsistence resources, including seals, beluga whales, fish, and reindeer, for food and other needs. Income is supplemented by selling native crafts. Access is by car during the summer, a 72 mile drive north on the Nome-Teller road, or by charter and commercial flights year round.
