Q.1797

The Koyukon Athabaskans who inhabit the area around this geographical feature have for centuries referred to it as Denali meaning ‘High’ or ‘Tall’ and on 28 August 2015 this name officially replaced the existing one. It was also briefly named after Frank Densmore, an Alaskan prospector. However, in 1896, a gold prospector named it after the then-presidential candidate who went on to become the 25th POTUS and this name stuck.

Which geographical feature are we talking about?
