    • Languages: Alutiiq, English (eng), Ninilchik Russian (rus), Old Slavonic (chu), Russian (rus)
    • Dates: 1985
    • Historical information: The project in which these materials were created was designed by Dr. Daly to test the hypothesis that in some parts of Alaska descendants of Russian settlers may have continued to speak a form of Russian to the present day. He obtained funding from the Center for Slavic and East European Studies to travel to Alaska for fieldwork. He started at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where Dr. Michael Krauss pointed him to a selection of published sources, mainly on lexical borrowings from Russian into Native languages of Alaska (especially Sugpiaq). He also mentioned to Dr. Daly that he heard that Russian was still spoken among a number of families associated with the village of Ninilchik on the Kenai Peninsula. Dr. Daly made contact with some of these families, initially via the Russian Orthodox Church in Anchorage, and conducted a number of interviews (taping them on a cassette recorder) in Anchorage, Ninilchick, English Bay, and at a number of locations on Kodiak Island (Kodiak, Ouzinkie, Spruce Island) during the months of July and August 1985. He presented the results in a paper read to the UCB/UCLA Slavic Colloquium held in early 1986.
