Brevig Mission is located in Nome Census Area 75 miles northwest of Nome on the Seward Peninsula. Brevig Mission was historically home to the Kauwerak Eskimos who lived in migratory communities in pursuit of hunting and fishing grounds, and traded fur with King Island, Little Diomede, and Siberia.

The town got its name from Tollef L. Brevig, a Lutheran missionary. Today, the population is largely Inupiat Eskimos who have lived in the area for many generations.
