Primer on Athabascan Culture

We are very blessed to be able to serve the Lord in Nenana, AK. One of the many blessing he has given us here is the opportunity to learn about the rich culture of the Athabascan people. In the few short years we have here, we still remain new students of the culture and traditions of Nenana. Still, we want to share some resources with any who would like to learn more about the native people of Alaska, including the Athabascan people.

In sharing these links, I hope that if anyone has suggestions for more resources they will share them in the comments section or will contact me using the “Contact” button at the top of the web page. Also, if any simply wish to share personal experiences and wisdom – please do so by adding your comments to this post.

The Troxels still have much to learn and are eager for learning opportunities. We feel so blessed to be able to live in Nenana fulfilling God’s call on our lives to minister in the name of Christ to all people everywhere – remembering the song sung to Christ found in Revelation 5:

And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
Revelation 5:9-10 ESV.

  1. May the culture of the people you are with survive your religion.

  2. Pastor Bill

    What an odd comment Tina…

    I think you would do well to familiarize yourself with me as a person (and pastor) as well as my faith before making the assumption I think you have made. My only response is

    May you come to know what Jesus truly taught.

    If I may help you do that, I would be pleased to talk more.
