A gathering place

Since time immemorial, the first peoples of the Interior have gathered at Troth Yeddha’ to meet and share ideas as well as harvest troth (wild potato).

The Troth Yeddha’ Indigenous Studies Center will build upon and honor the roots of this important place, strengthening UAF’s position as a global leader in Alaska Native and Indigenous programs.

The late Chief Peter John of Minto, speaking about Troth Yeddha’ in 1994, said his ancestors saw the hill as a place for thinking and working together. 

With growing enrollment of Indigenous students and a history steeped in culture, the Troth Yeddha’ Indigenous Studies Center champions a path forward to honor the Indigenous peoples of Alaska, to meet the current and future campus demands and to prepare the university for academic growth.
