If you can believe, this mask was carved by a teenage student. It was inspired by the exhibit: Like A Mask, the same exhibit that is currently showing at the Anchorage Museum for a short amount of time. These masks were unheard of for hundreds of years, so it’s an exciting time for the Sugpiaq, to learn more about their culture, and then pass it down to the younger generation. This is an example of teaching the younger generation, to appreciate what was lost.
