The monument features a coastal plain dotted with sizable lagoons, beautiful bluffs, and beach ridges, backed by gently rolling limestone hills. Alaska Natives lived on these grounds for thousands of years, leaving behind a rich archeological record. Today, Alaska Natives in northwest rely on the monument’s protected lands to sustain their traditional ways of life.

Size: Small, by Alaska standards: 650,000 acres, on the northwest coast of Alaska, just north of Kotzebue.
