Dena'ina

The Denaʼina are the only Northern Athabascan group to live on saltwater and this allowed them to have the most sedentary lifestyle of all Northern Athabascans. The Denaʼina were organized in regional bands or Ht’ana ("people of [a place or area]"), which were composed of local bands. The regional bands had several villages or qayeh, each containing multi-family dwellings called Nichił. Each Nichił was led by a qeshqa ("rich man" or "leader") who Russia and American traders and religious referred to as "Chiefs." Men and women in villages belong to their mother's clan. The clans were grouped into two sides or "moieties." Villagers could only marry outside of their own clan and moiety, maintaining diversity in the gene pool and strength in the village lineage.[5] Archaeological work suggests that the Dena'ina have occupied the Upper and Outer Cook Inlet areas for the last 1,000 years, migrating from the Mulchatna and Stony River areas, where they had lived for thousands of years prior.

Ahtna

Historically, the Ahtna people were semi-nomadic and extensive travelers, living in small groups of 20 to 40 people. They continually moved from place to place, following food sources according to the seasons. Annual summer fish camps for the entire family and winter villages served as their base camps. Although most Ahtna are no longer nomadic, historical traditions and ways of life, especially the practice of a subsistence lifestyle, continue to this day.

Yup'ik

The Yupik people are an indigenous group who live in Alaska and far northeastern Russia. According to U.S. Census data, there are approximately 34,000 Yupik people currently living in Alaska, with much smaller numbers, probably fewer than 2,000, living in Russia. The Yupik tribe is one of several indigenous groups living in Alaska, many of whom have shared ethnic roots. The word Yupik comes from the roots yuk, meaning ''person,'' and pik, meaning ''real,'' so the term ''Yupik'' means ''real person'' and the plural is Yupiit.
