The Story of Alaska Expressed Through Native Art

Travel back in time on an intimate couple of hours as you converse with Alaskan Native artists about their cultural traditions and creative heritage expressed through their diverse art forms. Discover the many ways in which Tlingit art is tied to Alaskan culture and tribal ancestry.  Alaskan artists will share with you personally how and why they create their carvings, woven baskets, blankets, beadwork, and other artistic pursuits as well as the stories and traditions that have been passed down in their families for centuries.
