Wainwright is located along a wave-eroded coastal bluff on the west
side of a narrow peninsula, which separates Wainwright Inlet from the
Chukchi Sea. Captain F.W. Beechey named the inlet in 1826 for his
officer, Lt. John Wainwright. The present village was established in
1904 when the Alaska Native Service built a school there.
The Olgoonik Corporation is the Village Corporation established
pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Act of 1971. The Olgoonik

villagers perform traditional Iñupiat dances. Other activities include
boating, snowmobiling, hunting, camping, smelt fishing in the spring,
and native arts and crafts.
