Synopsis

For more than a thousand years, Alaska Native people have fashioned human figurines out of stone, bone, ivory, rodent claws, trade cloth, and many other materials. It is widely acknowledged that children played with such figurines but their other uses in both everyday and ceremonial life are less well known.This book celebrates the many uses of dolls and human figurines from Alaska Native cultures past and present. The examples included represent all six ethnic groups in Alaska -- the Inupiaq and Yu'pik Eskimos, the Aleuts and Alutiiqs, as well as the Athabascana and Northwest Coast Indians.
