Brief Information About Bethel


Bethel is a city located near the west coast of the U.S. state of Alaska, 340 miles west of Anchorage. Accessible only by air and river, Bethel is the main port on the Kuskokwim River and is an administrative and transportation hub for the villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.

Bethel is the largest community in western Alaska and in the Unorganized Borough. It had an estimated population of 6,356 in 2006. Bethel has the lone detention center in southwestern Alaska, the Yukon Kuskokwim Correction Center.Annual events in Bethel include a noted dogsled race, the Kuskokwim 300, and Camai, a traditional dance festival held each spring.

Bethel, at its original location, was a Yup'ik village called Mamterillermiut, meaning "Smokehouse People", after the nearby fish smokehouse. The Alaska Natives in this area have a long Christian history, in part from Russian Orthodox, Catholic and Moravian influence, and the Christian tradition has intermingled with its cultural history.
