The Alutiiq Museum Store is more than a first class retail outlet, it’s an essential part of the museum’s mission. By providing Kodiak artists with a place to show and sell their work, the store helps Alutiiq arts to thrive.  It promotes knowledge of Alutiiq traditions and encourages artists to keep creating.

To insure that the museum’s store and programs are meeting the needs of artists, we recently formed a Cultural Arts Committee.  This seven-member group will work with Store Manager Cristina Faiella and Executives Director Alisha Drabek as liaisons for the Alutiiq arts community.  The volunteer committee meets quarterly and its founding members include Coral Chernoff, Vickie Era, Jerry Laktonen, Jacqueline Madsen, Susan Malutin, Cindy Pennington, and Hanna Sholl.

One of the committee’s first tasks has been assisting with a revision of the museum store policy.  Artist wanted clearer guidelines on the use of animal products.  From discussions we learned of a need for resources and training on the complicated laws that surround the use of everything from animal pelts to feathers and ivory in artwork. The group also plans to discuss art forms at risk of being lost, ways to support youth arts training in Alutiiq villages, support for artist travel, the use of social media in arts promotion, and many other issues.  Share your ideas for promoting Alutiiq arts by speaking to a committee member or contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.
