the museum has always had a nice gift store and they still do. i found these cute little seal gut basket which i decided would look lovely in my little window box.
natives used seal gut in many ways. baskets and waterproof jackets were common. obviously a tiny basket such as this wasn't not used, just decorative. fun for me. the little bits of fur are from a polar bear. the artist is from st lawrence island, the community of savoonga. her name is elaine kingekuk. anyway...i'm happy with my new purchase.
added a few more pictures from carla and my hike out savage creek and back.
