An article yesterday on a presentation about the new book Giinaquq–Like A Face, University of Alaska Press’s best-selling book of 2009; it details the fascinating story of 70 Alutiiq ceremonial masks that were housed in a museum in France, and later reuinited with the descendants of the Alutiiq artists who made them, in Kodiak, Alaska. The book is a must-have for every museum anthropologist’s book shelf!
