Seven Villages can be found within or adjacent to the boundaries of the refuge where residents practice subsistence activities such as hunting, fishing, berry picking and wood gathering. Most of these communities are only accessible by boat or airplane in the summer months and snowmobile or dogsled during winter. About 2.5 million acres of land within the refuge boundaries are under Village or Regional Corporation ownership.
