"Alaska Eskimo Footwear" celebrates the beauty and spiritual significance of the shoes and boots worn by Alaska Native peoples. Stunning photography highlights the harsh and striking environment of the North and demonstrates how essential footwear was to Native survival, while Eskimo seamstresses, dancers, and hunters explain the symbolic meaning of their traditional patterns and decorative details. This full-color volume features photographs from museum collections in Canada, the United States, and Russia, as contributors from each major Alaska Eskimo group discuss skin preparation, boot construction, and decoration.
