Near or far off this tiny octagonal Russian Orthodox Church in Junea, Alaska is very intriguing.
St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church
In continuous use for 117 years, most of its congregation are native people. The Russian Orthodox Church missionaries were much more successful in converting the native population in Alaska, as they conducted services in the native Klingit tongue rather than trying to suppress it as other missionaries sought to do. In fact this church was established through the efforts and initiative of the local Klingit leaders.
