ALASKA / Eskimo
from ossified bone/baleen
Chris Aningayou and his uncle, Alvin Aningayou, are Alaskan coastal natives descended from the Yupik people of Siberia. The family hunts for
food and material to carve, which they sell for subsistence.
The fossil bone from St. Lawrence Island, their ancestral home, is carved into compelling objects reflecting the native lifestyle.
Acquired in 2004
