The park brings together people from all walks of life to share indigenous knowledge. When the land was dedicated by Chief Peter John of the Tanana Chiefs Conference of Interior Alaska, he remarked that the elders decided Troth Yeddha’ was good because it would carry on a similar traditional use of the hill, a place for good thinking and working together.
