A Map of the Native Peoples and Languages of Alaska.
Krauss, Michael E., Comp.
Recommended for use in classrooms (no specific grade level is assigned) throughout Alaska, this base E sized wall map (4 feet by 3 feet) is color coded (number coded for the ERIC system) to reflect the 20 Alaska Native languages. Designating language dialect areas and boundaries, this map details the language relationships of the four Eskimo languages; the Aleut, Tsimpshian, Haida, Tlingit, and Eyak languages; and the Athabascan languages. Two insets illustrate the spread of Athabascan and Eskimo throughout North America and designate Alaskan language relationships, populations, and numbers of speakers. A text at the bottom of the map presents a thumbnail sketch of the Native languages and the present bilingual movement. Since this map has been disassembled for purposes of ERIC reproduction, instructions for reassembling the map are included. Ordering information is also provided. (JC)
