Unalakleet is located at the mouth of the Unalakleet River on the Norton Sound. Archaeologists have dated remnants of houses from 200 A.D. Unalakleet means, "place where the east wind blows."

The Russian-American Company built a post here in the 1830s.

Unalakleet has a history of diverse cultures and trade activity. The economy is the most active in Norton Sound. A musk-ox herd is maintained near Unalakleet, and the underwool (qiviut) is made into garments by Natives.
