K’Beq Interpretive Site

In 1984 Archaeologists discovered Indian and Eskimo graves along with prehistoric artifacts near Mile 55 of the Sterling Highway. Most recently the investigative focus has been on an area near present day Cooper Landing known as Sqilantnu, which roughly translates to “the grocery store.” The Chugach National Forest has partnered with the Kenaitze Indian Tribe to preserve and protect the K’Beq’ “footprints” interpretive site. You can experience the traditions and culture by participating in interpretive walks with tribal members.
