Alutiiq Museum honors Native ancestors with memorial park

Posted: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 9:00 am

KODIAK — After several years of planning, fundraising and landscaping, a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the Alutiiq Ancestors Memorial on Friday, heralding the official opening of the park to the public.

The park is on a 0.34 acre stretch of city-owned land along Upper Mill Bay Road, between East Rezanof Drive and Kashevaroff Avenue. It has been landscaped with lawns and plants and several winding pathways, which culminate at a central, circular stone planter surrounded by benches.
