ABSTRACT The methods of analysis presented by Sapir in his classic "Time Perspective" paper can be applied to issues in Alaskan protohistory. Based upon a wide array of linguistic, geographical, ethnographic and ethnohistoric evidence, a sequence of migrations by the Dena'ina into their historic language area is outlined . It is suggested that the headwaters of the upper Stony and upper Mulchatna rivers west of the Alaska Range is the most ancient home of the Dena'ina. The Dena'ina moved in a southerly direction on two fronts, into Iliamna-lake Clark and into Cook Inlet basin. Movement into upper Cook Inlet basin preceded other movements into middle and lower Cook Inlet. ca.16pp Citation: In The Late Prehistoric Development of Alaska's Native Peoples. eds.
