Holy Cross, located among small rolling hills, adjacent to the Yukon River, in the West Central Interior of Alaska, is home to Athabascan and Yupik. The community is situated on the west bank of Ghost Creek Slough, off the Yukon River and across from the mouth of the Innoko River.  It is a Deg Hit’an Athabascan Indian community but is inhabited by a combination of Athabascan and Yupik people. The community of Holy Cross marks the dividing line between the interior Athabascan and Southwestern Yupik regions. Prior to the establishment of Holy Cross, there were three villages in the surrounding area. Anilukhtakpak, which was located closest to the present day community, Ghost Creek just ½ of mile north Holy Cross and  Koserersky across from Ghost Creek, were all historical settlements in the area.  Holy Cross has a population of 250 of which 47 are students.
