Local Area Info: Utqiagvik, Alaska

Utqiagvik, (Inupiaq: Utqia?vik, IPA:[utqe.??vik], English: /??tki???v?k/ UUT-kee-AH-vik), officially the City of Utqia?vik,[A] and previously Barrow is the largest city and the borough seat of the North Slope Borough in the U.S. state of Alaska and is located north of the Arctic Circle. It is one of the northernmost public communities in the world and is the northernmost city in the United States. Nearby Point Barrow is the country's northernmost point. Utqiagvik's population was 4,581 at the 2000 census and 4,212 at the 2010 census.

The location has been home to the Iupiat, an indigenous Inuit ethnic group, for more than 1,500 years. The city's native name, Utqia?vik, refers to a place for gathering wild roots. It is derived from the Iupiat word utqiq, also used for "potato". The name was first recorded in 1853 as "Ot-ki-a-wing" by Commander Rochfort Maguire, Royal Navy. John Simpson's native map dated 1855, records the name "Otkiawik," which was misprinted on the subsequent British Admiralty Chart as "Otkiovik."

The name Barrow was derived from Point Barrow, and was originally a general designation, because non-native Alaskan residents found it easier to pronounce than the Inupiat name. A post office established in 1901 helped the name "Barrow" to become dominant. Point Barrow was named after Sir John Barrow of the British Admiralty by explorer Frederick William Beechey in 1825.
