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.
