Abstract

The Russian crew from Captain Alexei Chirikov's ship Sv. Pavel went missing on the American shore in 1741. This article examines the question of their fate, arguing that the men sought refuge among the Tlingit, who occupied the Alaskan coastline where the men went ashore. The article hypothesizes on the fate of the crew, using historic documents, modern sources written in Russian and English, as well as Tlingit oral history.
