Alaska's People
Alaska Natives, who make
up 15 percent of the state's
population, maintain many
traditions, such as whaling,
subsistence hunting and
fishing, and old ways of
making crafts and art.
Native heritage history and
culture can be found in
such diverse places as
Ketchikan, Anchorage and
Kotzebue, as well as in
hundreds of villages where
people live in traditional
The City and
Borough of Juneau
is the capital city of
Alaska. It is a
unified municipality
located on the
Gastineau Channel
in the Alaskan
panhandle, and it is
the second largest
city in the United
States by area.
Denali National Park
In the northern part of the
Alaska Range, Denali
National Park is the one of the
largest in the United States
and encompasses North
America's highest mountain.
The name is a strong point of
local contention. But names
aside, the six million acres of
wide river valleys, tundra,
high alpine ranges, and
glacier-draped mountains are
purely spectacular.
Located midway between Anchorage and Fairbanks, Denali is the
home of grizzly bears, wolves, reindeer, elk, and other animals.
More than 167 species of birds have been recorded in the park.
Another favorite among the park's many things to do are the Sled
Dog Kennels, which offer demonstrations and are home to
dozens of energetic huskies.
Northern Lights
One of the up-sides to Alaska's long dark
winters are the glowing Northern Lights
that appear on many nights from
September to mid-April. Some of the
best aurora borealis viewing happens in
the Fairbanks area. The peak time to
watch for solar particles in the earth's
magnetic field is after midnight. Joining
an aurora tour can help keep sightseers
warm in this frigid season.
Iditarod National
Historic Trail
The Iditarod National Historic
Trail consists of a network of
trails totalling more than 2,300
miles between Nome, on the
Bering Strait, and Seward, near
Anchorage. Originally used by
ancient hunters and later by gold
prospectors, the trail is now used,
and best known, for the Iditarod
Trail Sled Dog Race. Although it is
primarily a winter trail, hikers do
use sections during the summer
The Iditarod National
Historic Trail
commemorates a
2,300-mile system of
winter trails that first
connected ancient
Alaska Native villages,
opened up Alaska for
the last great
American gold rush,
and now plays a vital
role for travel and
recreation in modern
day Alaska.
Dog sledding, more popularly called
mushing, traces its roots back to the
Eskimos of the 15th century. It remained
a primary mode of winter transportation
in Alaska's bush country until pilots
began flying air routes in the 1920's.
Alaskans have been racing dogs since the early
1900's. The All Alaska Sweepstakes race began
in 1908 traveling between Nome and Candle.
Today, the most famous race in the sport, the
Iditarod, takes place every March.
Today, mushing is mostly a recreational sport.
Some mush for sheer pleasure while others
compete in a wide variety of races. Races range
from sprint mushing to long distance events
such as the Yukon Quest and Iditarod. During
the month of March, the whole state of Alaska
tunes in to daily updates on the progress of the
Iditarod racers.
Totem Poles
Totems are symbolic
representations of
animals or humans.
Europeans gave the
name "totem pole" to
the carved wooden
poles made by the
Northwest Indian tribes
such as the Tlinkit
Totem Bight State
Historic Park
In 1938 the US Forest
Services began a project to
salvage, reconstruct, and
create totem poles - a
tradition which was dying
out. Funds were used to hire
carvers from among the
older generations, and
abandoned totem poles
were restored or recreated
by these craftsmen. And, in
the process of this work,
they were able to pass on
their skills to younger
community members.
Fourteen poles were erected
in Ketchikan's Totem Bight
State Historic Park, now
listed on the National
Register of Historic Places.
