Release Date: 11/20/2016
I met Karen McIntyre at the Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka, Alaska. Karen is a Yupik Indian from Bethel Alaska, and she belongs to the red devil tribe. She told me about how her tribe uses fish skins to make waterproof clothing! Yupik people are known for being friendly and holding large potlatches to celebrate and entertain visiting tribes.
