Mosquito Lake, AK

Bureau of Land Management

Overview

The area has been occupied intermittently during the past 4,000 years by the ancestors of the modern Nunamiut Eskimos. The site was probably a hunting ground for caribou and Dall sheep, and is significant in that it represents one of the earliest and best documented inland sites used by Eskimos. Data obtained from the site have provided important information regarding the vast differences between the Eskimos' maritime and terrestrial lifestyles, and insights into their stone-manufacturing processes.
