History and Culture

Cape Krusenstern National Monument was established to protect a series of 114 beach ridges which preserve remains from every known cultural period in arctic Alaska in one of the richest and most detailed archaeological sites in Alaska. Like their ancestor have for thousands of years, modern Inupiat continue to live and practice a subsistence lifestyle on the shores of Cape Krusenstern.


The lagoons and coasts of Cape Krusenstern provide an excellent habitat for marine mammals such as walrus and seal, migrating waterfowl and land animals such caribou and muskox.
