This event will take place online via Zoom. A link and instructions will be emailed to you once you've registered.

Over thousands of years, Indigenous people of Alaska have developed and continue to have a deep relationship to the land. Join Gerad Smith, an archaeologist with Brice Environmental, and explore how the intersection of Dene place name study and current archaeological record offer context to Dene history in the Alaskan Interior. Free.


Note: This program has been retitled. Previously, the term 'prehistory' was in the title. The Anchorage Museum acknowledges being called on to reconsider this term as colonial and harmful. Discussion of this important point will be included in the program.
