This catalogue is the result of a jointly researched and curated project by American and Russian scholars, which brought important collections from Russia and America together into one exhibition of North Pacific ethnography and archaeology. Over 470 color and black and white illustrations accompany 37 chapters that explore the history, origins, art and diversity of peoples of Siberia and Alaska."

"Published in conjunction with a major international exhibition, this beautifully illustrated book presents a panoramic view of the history, art, and traditional cultures of the native peoples of Siberia and Alaska. The exhibition of which this catalog is a record was the first on ethnic history and contemporary way of life of the North Pacific's native population, and was jointly developed by the Smithsonian and the Soviet Academy of Sciences, and includes essays by an international group of scholars."
