Ukkusiksalik is the traditional homeland of modern Inuit who live in the region. Many of those who were born before the establishment of the local communities were raised along the shores of Wager Bay. Residents maintain living ties to the land, and it is not unusual to see Inuit families camping in the park and practicing traditional harvesting activities.

Please respect Inuit subsistence hunting, fishing and trapping rights by giving Inuit their privacy and refrain from approaching unless invited. Nunavut Inuit may travel through the park by motorized vehicle for traditional activities, including harvesting.
