Alaskan Arts & Crafts

Off the northwest coast of ALASKA, 32 miles from Siberia, lies St. Lawrence Island, where 1,000 Siberian Yupik Eskimos live in two villages. During a few short weeks in the spring and fall, they are legally allowed to hunt walrus and whales for subsistence. During the winter the people spend most of their time indoors, carving ivory and whalebone to generate income. These people live much the same life as their ancestors, and their art has played an important part in allowing them to maintain their culture and lifestyle. Read about St. Lawrence Island and how the ivory is gathered.
