Memory Eternal

Full Product Description

In "Memory Eternal," Sergei Kan combines anthropology and history, anecdote and theory to portray the encounter between the Tlingit Indians and the Russian Orthodox Church in Alaska in the late 1700s and to analyze the indigenous Orthodoxy that developed over the next 200 years. Sergei Kan is professor of anthropology and Native American studies at Dartmouth College. "[Provides] a vivid picture of the engagements between the actors who together contributed to transforming Tlingit culture: the different Tlingit families, the Russian traders, Orthodox and Presbyterian missionaries, Russian and U.S. settlers, and Tlingit women and men." "-American Ethnologist""This extraordinary book . . . is a model of historical anthropology." "-American Historical Review"
