Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Capt. Cook visited Unalaska about 20 years after the
Russians started to exploit the Aleutian Islands as a source of furs. During his visit, the
Russians evidently tried to hide from him their subjugation of the Aleuts. Cook has
included most maps and illustrations in a separate volume (Vol. IV). Only those text
passages and illustrations which pertain to the Aleuts are included. Since Cook only
visited Unalaska, his observations relate to the Aleuts of Unalaska.
