A look at the indigenous art in Alaska


Hello everyone,

This week we will be framing the class with a discussion  on tradition, a term that often is applied to Alaska Native art.

Please read Native Art of Alaska the Introduction(pp xxi-xxxi) chapter, 1 “The Nature of Tradition’ pp 1-21 and chapter 4 “Genres, Boundaries and Ways of Making’ pp 127-164.

Watch the short lecture on Tradition in our  Blackboard site.

Post your response in the Tradition Channel of Slack.

If you were not able to get the book yet I’ve uploaded the first few reading to Blackboard for everyone.
