Celebrate Nuch’ishtunt

August 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join us to celebrate history and culture at one of Anchorage’s earliest Dena’ina fish camps. For many centuries Anchorage’s First People – the Dena’ina – established spring and summer salmon fish camps at Nuch’ishtunt, “the place protected from wind,” now commonly called “Point Woronzof.”

The Dena’ina name Nuch’ishtunt means place protected from the wind. Listen to a pronunciation of Nuch’ishtunt. Speakers include Aaron Leggett, President of the Native Village of Eklutna and Senior Curator of Alaska History & Indigenous Cultures at the Anchorage Museum.

Limited seating will be available for Elders and people with special needs. Tents will be provided for shelter rain or shine. The event is free. Refreshments will be served. Biking and walking to the event along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is encouraged.
