Lost Villages of the Eastern Aleutians cover
Lost Villages of the Eastern Aleutians: Biorka, Kashega, Makushin, by Rachel Mason and Ray Hudson.

LOST VILLAGES OF THE EASTERN ALEUTIANS
BIORKA | KASHEGA | MAKUSHIN

When World War II encircled the Aleutian Islands, the lives of the Unangax̂ inhabitants and the communities they lived in were forever changed. Perhaps the most profound impacts were on three small traditional villages: Biorka, Kashega, and Makushin. Lost Villages of the Eastern Aleutians is the story of how these communities endured for centuries, how they survived the challenges of Russian and American ownership, and how war hastened their disappearance. It is the story of how the last generation to live in these villages made lasting contributions to an enduring culture and way of life. (accessible PDFs)
