1. The Native Alaskan Village Marker
Inscription. Native Alaskans, brought to Fort Ross by the Russian-American Company to hunt sea mammals and provide a work force for the colon, established a village on the marine terrace in front of the fort. The neighborhood also included the dwellings of inter-ethnic households composed of Native Alaskan men and local Native Californian women, In this "View of Fort Ross, 1828" by A. B. Duhaut-Cilly these homes appear on the far left above the ocean. This one-half acre site was investigated by archeologists from State Parks and the University of California, Berkeley, from 1989 through 1992; the artifacts recovered reveal the heritage of the inhabitants.
