As conservationists and people who care deeply for animals and wildlife, we created Alaskan Nature to provide educational information about the flora and fauna of the great state of Alaska.With both our written information and our stunning photos, Alaskan Nature hopes to inspire people in appreciating and understand the true beauty of Alaska Nature.Alaskan natives in Alaska number about 119,241 (as of the 2000 census).There are 229 federally recognized Alaskan villages and five unrecognized Tlingit Alaskan Indian tribes.After the arrival of missionaries in the late 18th century, many Aleuts became Christian by joining the Russian Orthodox Church.One of the earliest Christian martyrs in North America was Saint Peter the Aleut.
There was a recorded revolt against Russian workers in Amchitka in 1784.
The Aleut are expert boat builders and sailors and are well known for their kayaks. The Aleut language, Unangax, also derives from the Esk-Aleut family.
Aleut settlements were, as a rule, located on bays where there was a good gravel beach for landing skin-covered watercraft.
The report also found that among Native American people: With few options and supportive resources, Native American victims of abuse often go without assistance.
Our goal at the Strong Hearts Native Helpline (1-844-7NATIVE) is to provide culturally-appropriate support, referrals and safety planning for Native people by knowledgeable Native advocates. Equally important is acknowledging the existence of Native women as the backbone of our families and tribal communities.
