The Anaktuvuk River heads at glacier, in Endicott Mountains, then flows north 135 miles to Colville River, 7 miles north of its junction with Chandler River, Arctic Slope. The Eskimo name was reported in 1901 by W. C. Mendenhall, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as Anukturuk and corrected to its present spelling by W. J. Peters and F. C. Schrader, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the same year. The name appears to be applied by the Eskimo to the pass at the stream's head (USGS).
