YUUNGNAQPIALLERPUT: The Way We Genuinely Live
The Yup’ik people of Southwest Alaska meet the challenges of survival in the harsh subarctic environment through a sophisticated technology rooted in their close relationship to the land and the sea. Produced for the Anchorage Museum in conjunction with the major exhibition of the same name, this half hour program explores a sampling of the rich and ingenious variety of traditional Yup’ik tools, devices and clothing. [The exhibition is currently on display at the Anchorage Museum through the end of October, 2008]
