Angyat - Art of the Alutiiq Open Boat

Dr. Sven Haakanson, Jr. Tuesday, August 26th

HaakansonLecture2

 

Angyat (large Alutiiq open boats) were once a primary means of transportation for the Alutiiq people. In the late 1700s, this ceased during Russian conquest as a means of control. Dr. Sven Haakanson, Jr. is leading a movement to reclaim the art of angyat construction through his study of model boats in collections around the world. Haakanson will explore the boat's design as a unique Alutiiq watercraft. He will also share about teaching students to build angyat in Akhiok this summer — making them the first to be made on the island in over 100 years.

Dr. Sven Haakanson, Jr. is Curator of Native American Anthropology at the Burke Museum, and Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Washington.
