This exquisitely illustrated and extensive map charts the peoples and
languages of Alaska natives. The author, who founded the Alaska
Native Language Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and
directed it until 2000, was responsible for assembling the archive
of Alaska Native language documentation and has for more than
two decades worked to bring the world’s attention to the enormity
of the language endangerment crisis. A central contribution to the
field of Alaska studies, Indigenous People and Languages of Alaska
offers a unique geographic perspective and reflects the most updated,
contemporary research. It will serve as an essential resource for
Native and linguistic researchers.
