Reference work entry
Yupik – one of the native Alaska peoples, relating to the Inuits or Eskimos. They have been populating the spacious swampy plains of the Yukon and Kuskokwim deltas, as well as the coast of the Bering Sea and a part of the Seward Peninsula from time immemorial. Many of the Yupik have moved to the city, but some still keep the hunters’ way of life and spend their summers in family fisherman’s camps.
