Various indigenous people lived in Alaska before the Russian explored this land. These people included the Tlingit people, Haida, Tsimshian and the Aleut people. Some of these groups of people faced exploitation by the Russian and the others were curtailed to epidemics.
The Russians entered Alaska in the 17th century. Along came the Spanish people to assert their dominance over the land. Soon, these people started making their own colonies.
The then Sitka was now named New Archangel and many other colonies were renamed and the Russia succeeded in making them entitled to the land. William Seward who was the then U.S secretary of State negotiated the Alaska Purchase.
