Iñupiat Heritage

Iñupiaq translates into the “real people.” Our people have thrived for thousands of years in the Arctic. We have relied on an intimate knowledge of the environment and the values of sharing and cooperation.  It's why Iñupiat subsistence traditions remain an integral part of our shareholders’ way of life.
