    Alaskan Native Cultures & Russian Church
      US - Alaska
    Confronting these documents, mostly written in Russian but some in the Alaskan Native languages of Aleut, Eskimo, and Tlingit, Dr. Ivanov has resuscitated the vibrant, incredibly moving human exchanges that took place between the priests of the Russian Orthodox Church in Alaska and Native Alaskans, during the years 1794 to about 1915. These remarkable priests, intrepid heroes such as the Russian "giant" Ioann Veniaminov and the Creole Iakov Netsvetov, were not merely essential to the success of the colony established by the Russian American Company in 1784, they were also the agents through which much of the culture and languages of Native Alaskans were preserved. Only in recent years has the magnitude of their achievement been recognized -- and most appropriately during this 200th anniversary of the founding of the first Orthodox mission in North America in 1794.
    Edward S. Curtis Collection
      United States
    Many of the photographs published by Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952) in The North American Indian ([Seattle, Wash.] E. S. Curtis [Cambridge, U.S.A.: University Press] 1907 30. 20 v. E77.C97) were acquired by the Library of Congress through copyright deposit. Curtis worked over thirty years in remote regions of the United States and Canada to prepare this monumental survey. Through the support of J. P. Morgan, a lavish twenty-volume compilation of Curtis's photographs, in photogravure reproduction, was published in a limited edition of 500 sets.
    Field recordings of North American Indian music, 1940-1952
       
    While working for the Bureau of Indian Affairs with equipment supplied in part by the Library of Congress, Willard Rhodes of Columbia University recorded the music of fifty Indian tribes living primarily in the western United States. From the start of the project in 1940, the ethnomusicologist found that Indian music was "not a relic of the dead past but a vital, dynamic force." He documented, in addition to traditional genres, Christian hymns in native languages, songs with English words, and other music of recent composition.
