Inartalicirpet | Our Weaving Ways
Exhibit 

We are pleased to announce the opening of Inartalicirpet, the Alutiiq Museum’s new exhibition celebrating the history and artistry of traditional weaving on Kodiak Island. A group of weavers traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia to study historical Alutiiq artifacts and bring the traditions they learned back to our villages and community. We present their story in photographs and video, and display their recent works. Also on display are woven pieces from local artists, a rare 19th Century Alutiiq spruce root hat, and a collection of prehistoric items from the Karluk One archaeological site.  For more information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
