Sugpiaq Masks November 12

This site is chalk full of information about Alaska Natives, but the one I'd like to highlight is about the Sugpiaq. We are currently learning about the Sugpiaq in one of my courses for college, also we are learning about the masks that were found by a french man in the late 1700's early 1800's. These masks were preserved in France, and now after many years have come back to Alaska to be show cased in the Anchorage Museum for just a short while. It's a big deal for the Sugpiaq to see these masks and learn more about their culture. In the next couple weeks I will be sharing more information about these subjects.
