                         Aleutian Islands,
                         Hawaii and Northern
                         California.
Grigory Shelikhov.
Some researchers believe
that the first Russian
settlement in Alaska was
established in 17th century.




                         In 1648,
                         several expeditionary men
                         were thrown to Alaska by
                         storm and founded this
                         settlement.
COLONIZATION OF ALASKA
   Russian colonies’ population
    was about 4,000,0000
   From 1732 to 1867.
   The Russian-American
    Company was formed in 1799
    with the influence of Nikolay
    Rezanov for the purpose of
    hunting sea otters for their fur.
   Alaska’s population was
    made by mostly native
    Alaskans.
   The number of Russians
    rarely exceeded 500 at any
    one time.
END OF THE RUSSIAN ALASKA COLONY

By the 1860’s, Russia was in a difficult financial
position, and feared losing Alaska without any
compensation if they got into some conflict in the
future, so they decided to sell it (Alaskan territory)
to the United States for only 2 cents an acre. But
few years later, in Alaska, there were lots of
natural resources like gold and oil, and 10% of the
patrons in the world.
COLONIZATION OF CALIFORNIA

   From 1812 to 1841.
   Established in 1812 near
    Bodega Bay at Fort Rossi
    in Northern California.
   By 1818 there were 26
    Russians & 102 Native
    Americans total.
   They ran the commercial
    operation by Russian-
    American fur company
END OF CALIFORNIA COLONY

The fur trade had
depleted and the
governments of France,
Britain and Mexico had
declined.
In 1841, Russians
decided to abandon Fort
Ross. Russian California
was handed in peacefully
and completely free.
Main Problems of Russian America
As already mentioned before, Russia was going through
many financial problems, and having colonies in the United
States wasn't making it easy for them. The cost of
exporting food and other products all the way to Alaska &
California was too high. This economic aspects affected the
Russian government so much that Russian colonies in the
US had to be removed.
Buying Alaska
• Alaska
  was purchased from Rus
  sia on March 30, 1867,
  for $7.2 million at
  approximately two cents
  per acre.
• The land went through
  several administrative
  changes before
  becoming an organized
  territory on May 11, 1912,
  and the 49th state of the
  U.S. on January 3, 1959.
Tsarist Government
• The Tsarist government expected that the
  Russian-American Company would make great
  plans of expansion. As a result of it, the northern
  part of the Pacific Ocean would be the new
  home waters of the Russian Empire.
• G. I. Shelikhov and D. I.
  Zavalishin supported
  Alekeseeva’s idea that she
  wrote in her book. This idea
  was about the unrealized
  projects to transform the
  Northern part of the Pacific
  Ocean into an inland sea of
  Russia. In 1806 Rezanov
  proposed a new plan for
  Russia’s establishment on      D. I. Zavalishin
  both shores of the Pacific
  Ocean.
The general of the fleet Count N. F.
Golovin, elaboarated a project to
send a large-scale expedition of
the Russian navy; with the goal of
training experienced marines,
expanding commerce and founding
forts in America.
