By Executive Order Obama Takes Another Piece Of American History - Changes Name Of Historic Mountain

President Barack Obama says he's changing the name of the
tallest mountain in North America from Mount McKinley to Denali by executive order.
He's  giving the mountain its  Alaska Native name on the eve of a historic presidential visit to Alaska.
Denali is an Athabascan word meaning "the high one." 

The mountain officially known as Mount McKinley from 1917 until 2015, is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,237 feet above sea level.

The mountain was named after former President William McKinley. There have been several efforts by Alaska politicians change it to Denali. But politicians from McKinley's home state of Ohio have opposed changing the name.
Obama is citing the Interior Department's authority to change the name.

Obama departs Monday for a three-day visit to Alaska  to promote his propaganda on climate change.
