Sample text

Rather than setting to the work alone, however, the priest Ivan Veniaminov traveled to Akun to accomplish the task with the toion Ivan Pan'kov. Both men's names eventually appeared on the published title page as co-translators. Arriving on the 7th after a difficult and eventful sea crossing by baidarka (kayak), Veniaminov began the very next day, and by nightfall the two Ivans had translated the first two chapters. The priest and the toion continued diligently, interrupting their work to celebrate liturgical services daily and once to make a pastoral visit to a lone, ailing parishioner, 15 versts away, about 10 miles, going by baidarka over water and by foot over land, then returning to their task straightaway.

42 At the meeting, other toions were present as well, among whom Pan'kov presided. Addressing Sarychev in Russian, this primary toion wore a headcovering and an over-garment of light red cloth and of velvet with gold or golden trim, presented to him by a government office in northeastern Asia. Outstanding in color, unusual in texture, they distinguished him from the other toions in the council and from Sarychev, for the clothing was unlike a European uniform. Dressed as an Aleut of high status, the primary toion stood and spoke.

Born in an eastern Siberian village, he may have been partly Native Siberian himself (while the details of his parentage are unknown, an indication exists: he was born in a village from local parentage). Schooled, married and ordained in the town of Irkutsk, he volunteered there for the Unalaska assignment and was dispatched through northeastern Asia. He then remained in the Unalaska and Sitka parishes, except for the brief excursion south, until he departed Sitka for Petersburg in 1838, after the span of these journals, a journey he made primarily to promote and oversee the publication of his work in the Aleut language and about the Aleutian Islands.
