Provide a welcoming place and a physical sense of belonging for Alaska Native students, leaving a legacy for generations to come. TROT DDtA Our people used to come to this hill to pick troth. They would paddle up the creek, Troth Yeddha' No, and camp by the lake, Troth Yeddha Mene. Troth Yeddha' was an important meeting place. The grandfathers used to come to talk and advise one another. When they learned this place would be used for a school, the university, they came here one last time. They decided that the school would be good and would carry on a similar traditional use of the hill. The hill would continue being a place where thinking and working together would happen."
