The Inupiat are an ethnic group in Alaska and Canada, along the Bering Strait. There are about 33.000 Inupiat left. They are classified by the language they speak:

  • Seward Iñupiat: Northwest Alaska, along the Seward Peninsula.
  • North Alaska Inupiat: Canada, and the other parts of Alaska

Both languages are part of the inupiat languages.
