This website is dedicated to the residents of Unga Alaska who endured a challenging existence but never wavered from the love for their beloved Unga.

Although Unga Alaska is now just a memory, our goal is to keep Unga alive in hearts of future generations who may not have ever known that this remote community once existed.


“If I were ever asked about where I would choose to be born, I would choose Unga.  We were all so lucky to have lived there as children with so many warm, loving, caring Ungaites in the peaceful, quiet town of our beloved Unga”.
Alice Knutsen Lauritzen Nilson 1915-2004
