The Predicament of Chukotka's Indigenous Movement : Post-Soviet Activism in the Russian Far North / Patty A. Gray

Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2005. First Edition. This is the first ethnography of the Russian North to focus on post-Soviet relations of domination between an indigenous minority and a non-indigenous majority in an urban setting. Patty Gray charts the political transformation in Chukotka as its administration sought to represent itself as "democratic" while becoming ever more repressive, especially toward the indigenous population. The "predicament" refers to how the nascent indigenous movement was prepared to address Soviet-style domination, and instead was confronted with this "new Russian" style.
