On a recent visit to Alaska, President Obama announced plans to change the name of Mt. McKinley to Denali, in a nod to the region’s native population. Last week, we asked if you agree with this change.
Approximately half of respondents disagree with the change, 26% of participants agree, and 21% were unsure.
One reader said, “The name of the mountain should be whatever the people of Alaska wish to call it.”
Another said, “Denali was the mountain's original name.”
Other comments included:
“More than one person was involved in the decision to name the mountain McKinley.”
“We have done the same in Australia with a big rock called Uluru now.”
