The Swan Point site is on a hill that overlooks the wetlands of the Shaw Creek Flats, and contained the evidence of multiple occupations that date back to 14,000 years ago. These flats are within the traditional territories of the Salcha-Goodpaster bands of the Middle Tanana Athabascans. Shaw Creek meanders across the flats and has the name Debedee Na', meaning 'sheep horn creek', and its mouth Debe Dacheege, or ‘sheep mouth’ in the Middle Tanana Language.
An Athabascan tradition component dates between 1040 and 1260. From the items recovered, we can see that a small hunting band camped on the hill while observing game in the wetlands beneath. They had a campfire, butchered game, cached food in a pit, and repaired weapons. Other Athabascan tools found at Swan Point include stone and antler projectile points for hunting animals, an adze fragment for chopping bone or wood, boulder spall scrapers for skinning, and a copper awl for piercing hides.
