Indigenous Peoples and Languages of Alaska

Map

by Krauss, Michael

Holton, Gary

Kerr, Jim

West, Colin T



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.
