Denali Alaska : Denali Foundation : Wilderness Education, Elder ...
The Denali On the Road program has undergone some profound changes in the past two years as we have expanded the program to incorporate traditional Native knowledge. We have gotten off the road system and into some very small airplanes to bring the program to rural Alaskan villages. One of the biggest challenges of the program is to develop a system of Native Elder contacts within the rural communities and encourage them to share their knowledge.
