Travel With Bearfoot To Cooper Landing, A Native American "Supermarket"

Long Ago, People Came To the Kenai And Russian Rivers, Just As They Do Today 

Cooper Landing is where the Russian and Kenai Rivers come together. And where salmon fishing is absolutely fabulous... and, totally accessible from Alaska's road system. Only 100 miles south of Anchorage, Cooper Landing was once a large Kenaitze Indian fish camp. The Kenaitze had a name for the area. Roughly, it translates as, "The Grocery Store." This is a Native American icon, marking a spot along the river banks.
