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 beautifully photographed book catalogs the collection of nearly five hundred Alutiiq cultural items held by the Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography, or the Kunstkamera, in St. Petersburg, Russia. Gathered between 1780 and 1867, many of the artifacts are composed of fur, feathers, gut, hair, and other delicate materials, which prevent their transport for display or study.
To document these artifacts for the public, the Kunstkamera collaborated with the Alutiiq Museum in Kodiak, Alaska. Together, anthropologists and members of the Alutiiq community combined the collection records with cultural knowledge and high-resolution digital imagery and worked to name objects, describe their uses, and detail the materials used in their construction. As a result, this book will provide the Alutiit, Alaskans, Russians, and the global community with lasting access to one of the oldest, most extensive ethnographic collections from the central Gulf of Alaska.
