From Aliaska to Alaska: Russian and American Colonialism
Russian colonization stretched all the way to Alaska, the empire’s only overseas colony. Russian America was not just a trading conduit to the Americas, Russian settlers instituted colonial administration over the indigenous population. But in 1867, the Russian government sold its Alaskan possession to the United States, which in turn, established its own colonial rule. This live interview with Bathsheba Demuth and Ilya Vinkovetsky will discuss the history of Alaska, Russian and American settlement and rule, and the transformation of its indigenous people.
