Alaska's First People By Judy Ferguson
The epic story of the indigenous people of Alaska in 1898. T.A.H.I.T.A. (Tlingit, Aleut, Haida, Inuit/Eskimo,Tsimshian and Athabascan) travels with his Grampa and his little fox from the Aleutians to the arctic, meeting Alaska’s first people, giving and receiving tokens. A coffee table art book, it is an easy way to learn all of Alaska’s cultures with color-coded maps and cultural tokens on every page. Tahita’s little fox is always causing mischief, entertaining the children while they cover all of Alaska’s cultures and geography. With masterpiece oil paintings on every page, Alaska’s First People excites the imagination and presents the subtle beauty that is the Great Land. The number key on the master map on the inside of the front cover correlates with the color-coded maps on the inside pages and the glossary definitions in the back. Developed with indigenous leaders from each culture, Alaska’s First People portrays Aleut, Sugpiag, Yupiaq, Inupiaq, Gwich'in, Koyukon, Tanacross, Ahtna and the Eyak.
