Notes from DaVic Gallery: Ingalik, from the Russian via an Inuit word for “Indian.” The name has been loosely used to include such culturally related—but separate—tribes as Koyukon, Tanana, and Han. Their self-designation is Deg Hit’an, “People from Here.” They were heavily influenced by their Yup’ik neighbors. The Ingalik shared eastern parts of their traditional territory—the banks of the Anvik, Innoko, Kuskokwim, Holitna, and lower Yukon Rivers—with the Kuskowagamiut Inuit. The land consists of river valleys as well as forest and tundra. The Holikachuk, a related though distinct people, lived to their north. This is probably a trip by Andrew to this region.
