Meet the natives of Alaska--Eskimos, Indians, and Aleuts--while touring the vast state of Alaska. The cities of Ketchikan, Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Nome and Sitka are visited; the Russian heritage of Sitka is strikingly demonstrated in its architecture. Native American practices such as totem-carving and blanket throws are shown, and the geography and history of the state are briefly discussed.
