Culture summary (105);
This is a very brief survey of the culture
history, foreign relations and economy of the Russianized Aleuts living on the
Komandorskiy Islands (Bering and Medny Islands). The author compares and
contrasts the life of the Aleuts as it existed in the early fur trade days
before the Russian Revolution to its present status under the commune system.
Despite the obvious bias on the part of the author in compiling his data, there
is much incidental ethnographic information to be gleaned pertaining to
clothing, house types, boats, population statistics, education (primarily under
Soviet control), hunting and fishing.
