About Denali National Park
Human habitation in the Denali region dates back more than 11,000 years, with documented sites just outside park boundaries dating back more than 8,000 years. However, relatively few archaeological sites have been documented within the park boundaries, owing to the region's high elevation, with harsh winter conditions and scarce resources compared to lower elevations in the area. The oldest site within park boundaries is the Teklanika River site, dated to about 7130 BC. The sites are typically characterized as hunting camps rather than settlements, and provide little cultural context. The presence of Athabaskan peoples in the region is dated to 1,500-1,000 years before present on linguistic and archaeological evidence, while researchers have proposed that Athabaskans may have inhabited the area for thousands of years before then. The word Denali means "the high one" in the native Athabaskan language and refers to the mountain itself.
Athabaskan Indians live in interior Alaska and have the largest land base of any other Alaska native group. The Athabaskan are efficient hunters and fisherman, and the moose, caribou, salmon and the birch tree are the most important resources. These provide food, clothes and shelter. In summer, they spend a great deal of time at their fish camps along major river systems – including the Yukon, Tanana, Innoko, Chandelar, Koyokuk and Tolovana rivers. In winter, they hunt caribou, moose and smaller animals.
Canoes and sleds were made of birch bark, moose hide and cottonwood. All Athabaskans used sleds, with and without dogs to pull them.
