Gates of the Arctic

{Gates of the Arctic National Park originally posted by US Interior} Gates of the Arctic National Park and the Brooks ranges is the homeland of the Nunamiut, an Iñupiat people who live within the boundaries of the park in the village of Anaktuvuk Pass. Even more than parks in the lower 48, Alaskan national parks are portrayed as true wildernesses, unpopulated and unchanged, when in fact they are the most likely to have people living in them. Gates of the Arctic is a beautiful natural area, but it is also a cultural landscape influencing and influenced by the indigenous people that call it home. #publiclandisnativeland
