Ambler is a small city of about 260 residents in Alaska’s Northwest Arctic Borough, just 45 miles north of the Arctic Circle and near the confluence of two rivers. Another 7,200 people live in the borough, a 39,000-square-mile area. Temperatures here range from 90 to -70 degrees. People travel by snowmobile, plane, ATV or small boat since there are no roads linking the city to the rest of the state. Fish, caribou, moose, bear and berries are common sources of food. The local economy is supported by government, mining, health care, transportation, services and construction. The vast majority of people who live here are Alaska natives.
