What were the Imperial Russian terms for a mixed-race Siberian person?
Historical background: As Russia expanded eastward, many mixed children were born to native women and Russian men. Near the end of this process, the Russian-American Company imported the Spanish term criollo, "descendant of persons not native to the New World", as креол to describe such children in its colonies. The creoles were a distinct social estate with different rights than either of their parents (perhaps one инородцы and one сельские обыватели) had. According to Lydia Black's "Russians in Alaska" (pp. 215), креол was never used or applied outside of Alaska. Reading that, I started to wonder what other terms it had replaced.
