Synopsis: This is the first ethnography of the Russian North to focus on post-Soviet relations of domination between an indigenous minority and a non-indigenous majority in an urban setting. Patty Gray charts the political transformation in Chukotka as its administration sought to represent itself as "democratic" while becoming ever more repressive, especially toward the indigenous population. The "predicament" refers to how the nascent indigenous movement was prepared to address Soviet-style domination, and instead was confronted with this "new Russian" style.

Book Description: The 'indigenous rights movement' of the Chukotka people in the Russian Far North demands that Chukotka people should enjoy a privileged cultural or political space, rather than being dominated by Russian Nationalism. Patty Gray explores the reasons why this movement has been unsuccessful, and argues that the movement as a continuation of soviet tendencies rather than something comparable to Native Rights movements in the Russian Far North. A further difficulty is that the movement's leaders are urban and educated, while the population they represent is largely rural and poorly educated.
