Report on the Work of the Bureau of Education for the Natives of Alaska, 1915-16. Bulletin, 1917, No. 32
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
In August 1887, William Duncan, an independent missionary working among the Tsimpsean Indians of British Columbia, brought to Annette Islands, in the southeastern part of Alaska, a colony of between 800 and 1,000 of Indians from the old town of Metlakatla in British Columbia. Under the leadership of Mr. Duncan, this colony made rapid progress. In 1911 the natives of two villages in southeast Alaska migrated to a site selected on account of its advantages with regard to hunting and fishing, where they founded a village named Hydaburg. Within less than a generation the Eskimos throughout northern and western Alaska have been advanced through one entire stage of civilization, from making their living by the precarious method of hunting and fishing to the pastoral stage in which by their own industry they provided against want. This bulletin presents report on the work of the Bureau of Education for the natives of Alaska from 1915 to 1916. Contents include: (1) General Summary; (2) Detailed Reports; and (3) Extracts from the Report of the Governor of Alaska, 1916. (Contains 1 footnote and 18 plates.)
