Community Profiles

Compiled by Julia O'Malley


Alaska's diverse and complex history is perhaps best understood community by community, town by town. There is no "typical" Alaskan city, no single spot on the state map that exemplifies every Alaskan issue.

As the following profiles show, Alaska's far-flung settlements have many elements in common, but many divergent aspects as well. In looking at these profiles you will see how the themes that the Harriman Expedition once pondered -- urban/native divide, species decline, environmental conservation and resource development -- continue to be central landmarks on the Alaskan political landscape.
