Abstract
Iakov Egorovich Netsvetov (1802—1864) was a Creole Orthodox priest now known as “Apostle to America”. Like other missionaries, Netsvetov attempted to minimize the intrusion of Orthodoxy into Native Alaskan ways, particularly by studying Native languages. In his role as cultural intermediary, Netsvetov exemplified Russian colonial strategies of extraction and investment, and the consequences of these for all Alaskan identities.
