Indigenous Peoples and Languages of Alaska
This map shows the indigenous language regions of Alaska. Related languages of neighboring Canada and Russia are also shown. The language boundaries represent traditional territories at approximately 1900 and are based on those established in Michael E. Krauss' Native Peoples and Languages of Alaska map (1974, revised 1982 -- G961K1974b). The current map was generated digitally using geographic information systems (GIS) technology. In addition to language boundaries, the map includes more than 270 indigenous place names in indigenous orthography.
