A Brief Note on the Significance of Prehistoric Dogs from the Eastern Aleutian Islands

Kathryn M. Holland

Abstract

Close examination of unexpected faunal remains from an island in the eastern Aleutian Islands, Akun Island in the Krenitzin Group, revealed evidence of prehistoric interactions with other distinct cultural entities of the region between A.D. 500 and the arrival of the Russians in 1741. Native peoples appear to have been especially active in traveling and interacting with their neighbors in the Aleutians or the Alaska Peninsula, and perhaps even further.
