The range of the Dena’ina people stretches from the Cook Inlet region to southcentral Alaska and has been established for a thousand years. Yet their culture has largely been overlooked, leaving large gaps in the literature. Dena’inaq’ Huch’ulyeshi, a new catalog of Dena’ina materials, is an ambitious project that finally brings their culture to light.

Lavishly illustrated with more than six hundred photographs, maps, and drawings, Dena’inaq’ Huch’ulyeshi contains 469 entries on Dena’ina objects in European and American collections. It is enriched with examples of traditional Dena’ina narratives, first-person accounts, and interviews. Thirteen essays on the history and culture of the Athabascan people put the pieces into a larger historical context. This catalog is a comprehensive reference that will also accompany a large-scale exhibition running September 2013 through January 2014 at the Anchorage Museum.
