Significance: A semi-nomadic people until after World War II, the Nunamiut Eskimos adopted a sedentary lifestyle in order to send their children to school and have regular air contact with Fairbanks, Alaska. The first log buildings and sod houses in Anaktuvuk Pass symbolize the Nunamiuts' transition to sedentarism as they adopted their lifestyles and traditional dwellings to village life.
