ANLC Map

From: Alaska Native Language Center, University of Alaska-Fairbanks
The small map insert to the right shows Ińupiaq to be a dialect of the Inuit language which ranges across the North American arctic rim into Greenland (light blue). The map insert also shows the spread of the Athabaskan Indian language (red) from Interior Alaska across Northwest Canada. Note that Navajo and Apache people in the Southwest and several tribes along the Northwest Coast also speak an Athabaskan language. Much more on this map and some of the historical questions it raises in Chapter 4.
