Village of Minto

The Tanana Athabaskan village of Minto is located on wooded bluffs above the Tolovana River at the northern edge of the Minto flats with a spectacular, wide-open view to the south – a large complex of lakes and connecting waterways, numerous islands of birch and spruce, and in the distance, the spectacular Alaska Mountain Range, including the highest peak in North America, Denali.

Minto has about 150 residents, most of whom are Tanana Athabaskans. The village is unusual in that it has year-round road access and residents can easily make the trip to Fairbanks. Although the tools have changed with the modern world, life for most residents still follows the ancient rhythms of the seasons: waterfowl hunting in spring, salmon fishing in summer, moose hunting and berry picking in fall, trapping and ice fishing in winter.
