"The predominance of indigenous voices in The Alaska Native Reader will help correct the disgraceful imbalance in the way that the history of Alaska has been recorded and constructed. The reasons for the imbalance lie in the very history that is exposed here." --Charlotte Townsend-Gault, University of British Columbia
"An insightful portrayal of Alaska Native history, culture, and politics expressed through multiple voices to inform indigenous and cross-cultural understandings. The importance of this volume is its ability to dispel the colonizing myth of the homogeneity of indigenous lived experience." --Graham Hingangaroa Smith, Distinguished Professor and Chief Executive Officer, Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi (New Zealand)
