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 wrapping through the trees 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, an early Dena’ina village known as Sqilantnu, meaning “the grocery store.” It is open four days a week, June through August. Admission is free.
