Abstract
The term Aleutian Region refers to the habitat of the Unangan (Aleut) speakers. In pre-contact times this area encompassed, from east to west, the Shumagin Island to the south of the Alaska Peninsula, the area of the Alaska Peninsula west of Port Moller, and all the islands of the Aleutian Archipelago, including the Near Islands in the west. In post-contact time, two Bering Sea island groups, the Pribilof Islands in the United States and the Commandor Islands (Komandorskie ostrova) in Russia, were settled by Aleuts and are incorporated today in the Aleutian Region.
