The Americas were gradually settled by the migrating eastern Siberian peoples thousands of years ago via the Bering Land Bridge. Some of them moved on to parts of what is now the United States and Canada while others moved on to the countries of Central and South America in search of a more hospitable environment. Some groups stayed behind in Alaska and populated the coast while others went further inland into the Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada. The Alaskan natives established their home in Unalakleet around 200 BC according to the Bible Timeline Chart with World History.

One of the groups of people that stayed and thrived on the coast of Alaska (particularly Norton Sound) was the group of Yup’ik people called Unaligmiut (Unalirmiut) of Unalakleet. The remnants of their settlements date back to the ancient times and the first inhabitants of Unalakleet survived as hunter-gatherers and fishermen. They had seasonal camps and villages in the area but these first Alaskans sometimes traveled to follow the migration of fish (especially salmon), sea mammals, as well as animals on land.
To survive the harsh sub-arctic environment, they made clothes out of the skin of marine and land mammals, as well as birds. The clothes were waterproof and provided optimum warmth so they could withstand the cold. The descendants of the first Unaligmiuts still live in Unalakleet and other coastal areas of Alaska.
