Russian toponyms on the map of Alaska and Aleutian Islands as an object of Cultural intangible heritage

Abstract. The article is devoted to the discovery, study, description, mapping and colonization of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands by Russian pioneers. In the ХVIII c. the territory of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands was actively developed by Russian explorers. The Russian-American Company (RAC) was established, which engaged in fisheries all over the Northwest of America and managed all the islands in the North Pacific Ocean and the coast of North America. The RAC built Russian settlements here, brought new forms of management, its culture to this region. Russian America existed until 1867, when the mainland part and all islands were sold to the USA.

Hundreds of Russian geographical names, which were left behind by our discoverers, are preserved on the map of Alaska. The article, as an example, provides a list of some Russian names of geographical objects in a given territory and a map with Russian names of these objects.

Key words: navigators, pathbreakers, discovery, Alaska, Aleutian Islands, geographical names, maps, heritage.
