humans come and go
The Ahtna people (a branch of the Athabascan group) have lived in Alaska's Copper River Valley for thousands of years, hunting, fishing, and making use of its copper resources for implements and for trading. Their language has left its mark in the names of many of the rivers and landmarks of this part of Alaska. Caucasians came much more recently, seeking furs, mineral wealth, fish and game, agricultural lands, recreation, and natural beauty.
