Chistochina history:

Chistochina was originally an Athabascan fish camp along the Copper River. Later a telegraph station was established along the Eagle Trail which took miners to the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1800's.
The inhabitants are approximately 60% Athabascans and 40% transplanted Caucasians.

Hunting, trapping, berry picking and getting fish from the Copper River are important activities for the residents of Chistochina. We have many skin sewers who make beautiful beaded moccasins, hats, and gloves.
