Fish Creek

Residents dipnet on Fish Creek July 26. 

Historic Dena’ina cultural areas near Fish Creek in the Upper Cook Inlet will soon be mapped as part of a project funded this month through a National Park Service grant.

The almost $38,000 Tribal Heritage program grant was awarded July 15 to the Knik Tribe through an application process. Tribal leaders plan to work with an archeologist, field assistants and possibly several students from the Tribe’s new Knik Cultural Charter School to survey the area for any cultural signs of the Native people who lived and subsisted in the area for thousands of years, according to the grant application.
