Point Hope (Tikigaq), Alaska, with population around 700, lies at the tip of land jutting into the Chukchi Sea. Lying just 280 km north of Bering Strait and the narrowest separation of North America and Asia, it is 260 km distant from Siberia. From as early as 100-200 BC the region has been continuously inhabited by the Ipiutak, as evidenced by abundant artifacts. In recent times Russian explorers and whalers passed the area, and the cape was named by Captain Beechey in 1826. Visitors can see the remains of Old Tigara Village, a prehistoric site with the remains of sod houses. These were built under-ground for stability and insulation, walled with whalebone, with skylights of dried intestine.

Point Hope village depends on fishing and hunting. Bowhead whaling is central to Alaskan Eskimo culture and social structure, providing food, oil, and Native craft materials, with no part of the mammal wasted. Residents produce a wide array of arts and crafts for sale including carved ivory, baleen baskets, whale bone, masks, caribou skin masks, etched baleen, Iñupiaq parkas, ivory-tipped harpoons and bird spears. One kilometre out of town are cemeteries marked by whale ribs and bones. Out on the tundra there’s a wide variety of berries for your picking.

The Chukchi is ice-free from late June until mid-September. Cruise vessels now cross northern Canada E-W from Atlantic to Pacific oceans, passing Point Hope. The village is only accessible by air from Anchorage, and is served by diesel-generated electricity. The town is alcohol-free. Inupiat are the residents of the village, also the name of their language, though schools teach English. The Tikigaq Corporation (formerly Tigara) is an Alaska Native village corporation established in 1971.
