Alaska Native Peoples of Nomesd

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.


The Nome Eskimo Community Tribe (“NEC”) invites qualified candidates to submit proposals for contractual grant writing services to support our Housing Department and the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act (NAHASDA) Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG). The NEC is seeking to contract with an individual or firm that specializes in the management of the overall grant process and can assist the NEC to maximize the benefits of grant funding.
