Located on the west bank of the Buckland River, Buckland is 75 miles southeast of Kotzebue. Residents have occupied at least five other sites along the river; the presence of fossils indicate prehistoric occupation of the area. Buckland is an Iñupiat village, and subsistence is an important part of the local economy.
