Sharing Alutiiq Stories – Weaving our Past into our Present
Anchorage Debut- Saturday, May 11th, 1:30 pm Alaska Native Heritage Center Theatre
Kodiak Debut - Saturday May 18th, 7:00 pm, Alutiiq Museum Gallery
In 2011, Alutiiq weavers journeyed with Dr. Sven Haakanson to St. Petersburg Russia to view baskets collected in Alaska by Russian traders over 200 years ago. Join Haakanson for the Kodiak debut of a short film that highlights this journey. The weavers explain the inspiration they gained from studying the ancestral collections and how they weave. The practice of collecting grass, and teaching basketry also highlight the modern era of basket weaving in the Kodiak area.
Produced by: The Alutiiq Museum & Archaeological Repository, WonderVisions, The Shared Beringia Heritage Program—National Park Service, The National Science Foundation, The National Endowment for the Humanities, and Alaska Humanities Forum.
