Looking Both Ways: Heritage and Identity of the Alutiq People Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The range of the Denaand#8217;ina people stretches from the Cook Inlet region to southcentral Alaska and has been established for a thousand years. Yet their culture has largely been overlooked, leaving large gaps in the literature. Denaand#8217;inaqand#8217; Huchand#8217;ulyeshi, a new catalog of Denaand#8217;ina materials, is an ambitious project that finally brings their culture to light.

Lavishly illustrated with more than six hundred photographs, maps, and drawings, Denaand#8217;inaqand#8217; Huchand#8217;ulyeshi contains 469 entries on Denaand#8217;ina objects in European and American collections. It is enriched with examples of traditional Denaand#8217;ina narratives, first-person accounts, and interviews. Thirteen essays on the history and culture of the Athabascan people put the pieces into a larger historical context. This catalog is a comprehensive reference that will also accompany a large-scale exhibition running September 2013 through January 2014 at the Anchorage Museum.

Synopsis:

This book is an extraordinary introduction to the indigenous peoples and cultures of Alaska's southcentral coast. Combining oral tradition, history, and archaeology, it traces the Alutiiq path through ancestral generations to contemporary life, including today's compelling issues of cultural identity and autonomy. It is beautifully and heavily illustrated by Alutiiq art, objects, and images from the current museum exhibition on Alutiiq peoples that is now touring Alaska. The many contributors discuss Alutiiq relations with neighboring Alaska Native peoples, non-Native traders and invaders, the sea and land, place and time, and animals and spirit. Writers include Alutiiq elders, scholars, and storytellers, as well as anthropologists and historians. Seen from these many perspectives, Alutiiq identity emerges as a rich mosaic of people, location, and experience.
