Community Partnerships: Noatak, AK

iknowmine staff - Saturday, July 07, 2012
Noatak, Alaska. Population 514.

Noatak, Alaska is one of the villages we work with on a close basis here at iknowmine.org. We know some pretty awesome youth leaders and community leaders from that village. They traveled by boat to an airport to fly into Anchorage for our Community Advisory board meeting. It took over 10 hours of travel to get here. By airmiles, Noatak is a little over 600 miles from Anchorage. In comparison, Seattle, WA to San Francisco in how the raven flies, is 680 miles; and you’re crossing three states there!

For a more complete profile of Noatak, please visit its page on the regional Native corporation that serves Noatak, NANA.

Also, if you didn’t know, up here we pronounce it Noah (like the name) - tack (like tackle).
