Tucked beneath a canopy of trees along the upper stretches of the Kenai River is the K’Beq’ Interpretive Site.
K’Beq’, meaning “footprints,” gives visitors a glimpse into traditional Dena’ina customs and culture.
Operated in partnership with the Chugach National Forest, the site features informational signs, a boardwalk that wraps around a Dena’ina house foundation and a gift shop. Tribal members and staff also host interpretive walks and presentations.
K’Beq’ sits adjacent to the Sterling Highway near Cooper Landing at a Dena’ina place known as Sqilantnu, meaning “ridge place river”. K’beq’ is closed for the 2021 season as crews work to remove beetle-killed spruce trees from the site.
