Alaska Native Heritage Center

The Clothing Case. Alaska Native Heritage Center 8800 Heritage Center Dr
Anchorage, AK 99506-1655. November 4, 2009


The last two blogs I did, I got the information from the Alaska Native Heritage Center in an exhibit called, The Clothing Case. The Clothing Case contains different parkas from all the different culture groups in Alaska, Athabaskan, Yupik, Cup’ik, Inupiaq, St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Unangax, Alutiiq, Eyak, Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian clothing are all in this beautiful case. Underneath each piece of clothing is a description about the clothing. The description about the Unangax sax says who made the parka, what materials they were made out of, talks about the Russian American Company, uses of the sax, and the decorations. The sax in this case was made by a lady named Katja Gil and students of Atka Island. The Sax is made out of sea otter, seal, fur, suede leather, and beads.
