Why are Russians important in the history of Alaska?

Not only did Russia own us, they sold us! Trader Alexander Baranof arrived in 1799 to establish a fort in the town we now call Sitka. Russians brought the fur trade and part of the Alaskan culture we still enjoy today. Sitka and Seldovia Alaska are a couple towns that still embrace these Russian traditions through dance, architecture, and religion (Russian orthodox).
