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. Now it is a quiet area near Mosquito Lake, with many available activities such as boating, fishing, picnicking and camping.
