HISTORIES

 

The following are snapshots of Alaskan history, illuminating contexts from the STORIES in this archive
and the content of Ping Chong + Company's theater work ALAXSXA | ALASKA.

These HISTORIES are not an Alaskan encyclopedia; they are merely an entry point. 

These pages were prepared by dramaturgy students at the New School University's Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.
