In 1980, the US government banned new human occupation in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, a protected area home to thousands of native animals and pristine terrain spanning roughly the size of South Carolina. Currently, only a handful of families spread across seven permitted cabins are allowed to remain in the refuge. Within less than one hundred years, all remaining permits will reach expiration, and there will be no human presence left. The Last Alaskans documents the lives of some of the most isolated people in America – the last of their kind – as they struggle and thrive in Alaska’s untouched wilderness located hundreds of miles from roads, civilisation and each other.
