Alaska Native Peoples of Nome

Welcome to Nome Eskimo Community (NEC)

The Alaska Native Peoples of the Nome area have lived on the Seward Peninsula since time immemorial. Our unique cultures and languages have experienced considerable changes, but continue to thrive and develop today in the community of Nome, Alaska.

Representing the Native population in Nome, Nome Eskimo Community’s 2900+ members reflects the many heritages of the surrounding region. Among our member rolls are Central Yupik, Inupiaq, St. Lawrence Island Yupik and American Indians whose lineage is tied to Tribes in the Lower 48.

For nearly 70 years, NEC has represented the political, social, and cultural interests of Native peoples in the community of Nome and the Bering Straits region. While our mission and scope has evolved over the decades, our commitment to serving our members and community has remained steadfast.
