U.S. Senate Forwarding Mt. McKinley Rename Proposal

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski today commended her colleagues on the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for helping to advance legislation to officially restore the nation’s tallest peak to the traditional “Alaskan” name…


Sen. Murkowski(R-AK) “ The Koyukon Athabascan name for Mt. McKinley, is Denali, and that means The Big One, and when we refer to the mountain, we just refer to it as Denali, or we simplify it as the mountain. I was in Alaska this weekend, it’s absolutely glorious across the state, and everyone was just talking about, I saw the mountain, the mountain is out today, the mountain is Denali, and it is the big one, and it deserves to be called the names that  the Athabascans from the interior have called it for decades and decades.”
