Culture and Language

St Lawrence Island is home to two federally recognized Alaska Native tribes: the Native Village of Gambell and the Native Village of Savoonga. Together they constitute St Lawrence Island Yupik Eskimo society. The most closely related Yupik communities reside in Chukotka on the Russian mainland. The focus here is the St Lawrence Island communities. Residents speak Siberian or Chaplinski Yupik as their first language. The language includes both Russian and English loan words. St Lawrence Island Yupik is characterized by a large number of Anglo-American loan words that reflect the island's inclusion in the state of Alaska as well as the dominance of American culture in the community.
