Shishmaref is a city and village in the Nome Census Area, Alaska, United States. It is located on Sarichef Island in the Chukchi Sea to the north of Bering Strait and five miles from the mainland. It is situated at 66°15?20?N 166°04?20?W and lies in the Alaskan Time Zone. It also observes daylight saving time. The city lies in the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, which is one of the remotest national parks in the country. It was named in honor of Capt. Lt. Gleb Shishmaryov who used to serve the Imperial Russian Navy and had come here on an expedition in 1821.

If you’re a geologist or scientist, Shishmaref owes you a visit. Owing to global warming and few allied phenomena, the city’s sea ice (that serves as a protection and buffer against prevalent storms) is shrinking and coastline is receding. This has made the city prone to a number of environmental hazards.

This traditional Inupiaq Eskimo village is also known for its Native art. Its carvings of whalebone and walrus ivory are considered a hotcake by Alaskan art galleries.
