The Aleut[]

The Aleut are a population that lives in the Aleutian Islands and the Alaska Peninsula in southwestern Alaska. They are first archaeologically attested around 6400 BC, when the Anangula site - on Anangula Island, just off of Umnak Island - began to be inhabited. Anangula is believed to have been along the southern fringe of the Bering land bridge.

The Aleuts were largely hunter-gatherers, especially on the seas. Their hunters fished for salmon, shellfish, and crabs, as well as hunting for sea mammals such as seals and whales. Seal skin, bird feathers, and otter fur were also important as the materials from which Aleut clothing was made.

The Aleut did not keep written records, so their history is best attested after their first contact with European powers. When the Russian Empire began exploring Alaska, they discovered the Aleut and began trading with the Aleut for otter furs. However, as the eighteenth century wore on, the Russians began to pay the Aleut increasingly less for furs; this, combined with the growing scarcity of otters, placed the Aleut in a position of crisis. The Aleut revolted against Russia in 1784, but the rebellion was crushed and the Aleut were relocated throughout the islands of the Bering Sea.

The Aleut also suffered during World War II. Japanese forces occupied the islands of Attu and Kiska, and held the natives of Attu as prisoners of war on Hokkaido; simultaneously, the United States evacuated Aleuts from the islands and placed them in internment camps in southeastern Alaska. In an attempt to compensate the survivors of these interment camps, the United States' Congress passed the Aleut Restitution Act in 1988.

Disease and maltreatment caused the Aleut population to plunge to 1,491 in the 1910 census, but since then, the Aleut population has begun to rebound. In 2000, 11,941 people identified themselves as Aleut, and 17,000 claimed Aleut ancestry.

The names of historical Aleut leaders have been lost to history; Agugux is the name of the Aleuts' principal god. Agugux is the creator god in Aleut folklore. He is associated with the sun, and with the east, as the place from which the sun rises. Generally, Agugux is depicted as an incorporeal spirit rather than being anthropomorphized.

Dawn of Man[]

Greetings, Agugux, progenitor of the Aleut! For thousands of years, your people have lived on the Aleutian islands in the Bering Sea, boldly forging an existence in some of the harshest lands on Earth. Not only did your people survive in these lands, they thrived, becoming master hunters on the seas: Aleut kayaks, nets, and harpoons are the envy of your neighbors. Trouble would not befall the Aleut until the arrival of the Russians in the eighteenth century; they desired the furs that your people hunted, and despite the Aleuts' best efforts, they could not protect themselves from subjugation. Today, the Aleut live under the governance of the United States, although little more than 10,000 remain.[NEWLINE][NEWLINE]O Agugux, your people call to you to restore the Aleut to their height. Can you resist the incursions of those who seek to exploit your skills? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Introduction: Welcome to the land of the Aleut. I'm impressed that you managed to make it out here.

Introduction: Greetings. I am the champion of this village, and I have come to speak on behalf of the Aleut people. What brings you out here?

Defeat: ...It seems my days as a ruler are over. I'm going out to sea now, and hopefully we never have to see each other again.
