Dena'inaq' Huch'ulyeshi

Billed as the first major exhibition ever to focus on the history and culture of the Denai'ina Athabascan people, "The Dena'ina Way of Living" opens at the Anchorage Museum, 625 C St., on Saturday. Artifacts, film, learning stations and more will reveal the "invisible" indigenous people who have lived in upper Cook Inlet since 1,000 years before Anchorage was a tent city. The displays will remain up through Jan. 12.
