"It's only half a mile from savagery to civilization": American tourists and southeastern Alaska Natives in the late 19th century / Sergei Kan.

Title: "It's only half a mile from savagery to civilization": American tourists and southeastern Alaska Natives in the late 19th century / Sergei Kan.
Author(s): Kan, Sergei.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Lincoln, NE: University of Nebraska Press
In: Coming to shore : Northwest Coast ethnology, traditions and visions. (2004.),
Abstract: Discusses early Alaskan tourism and importance in process of constructing distinct image of Native peoples (Tlingit, Haida and Coast Tsimshian). Considers images of Tlingit portrayed by visitors to Alaska's Panhandle and argues that although images had been influenced by such earlier ones as those of "noble/picturesque" and "primitive savage", they differed significantly from those of Plains or south-western indigenous peoples.
