History and Culture
- Yup'ik Eskimos have inhabited this region for thousands of years due to the area's rich resources; however, Atmautluak itself was not settled until the 1960s. People moved to this site on higher ground to avoid flooding and for the rich resources of the area. A city was incorporated in 1976, but it was dissolved on Feb. 7, 1996, in favor of the traditional village council government.
