This ethnographic study of two Anchorage (Alaska) protestant congregations addresses the perceived mutuality or "Gift Exchange" between Protestantism and Inupiaq spirituality-culture. The study identifies two styles of congregational life that lead to differences in identification and expression of Inupiaq "gifts". The modern day cross-cultural (Inupiaq and Euro-American) interactions observed within these congregations are occurring a century after contact. The on-going exchanges interweave with missionary history and with dramatic personal and group relocations experienced by the non-urban Inupiaq congregants. An overview of both this missionary and collective history precedes discussion of the two Anchorage study congregations.
