Aleut Culture and History

As a complement to our Aleut language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Aleut tribe and their society. Please note that Aleuts and other indigenous Americans are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Aleut history is interesting and important, but the Aleuts are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have an Aleut link to add.
