Upcoming Event at Anchorage Museum
Inuvialuit Report Now Available!

New Site Based on Yup'ik Science Exhibit

The ASC has created a website for the exhibit, Yuungnaqpiallerput (The Way We Genuinely Live): Masterworks of Yup’ik Science and Survival. The exhibit was at NMNH from April 17th 2010 to July 25th 2010. Curated by Ann Fienup-Riordan the exhibit showcased over 200 Yup’ik artifacts from museums around the world.

The main purpose of the website is to share Smithsonian’s longstanding research and collections in the Yup’ik region by incorporating the Edward W. Nelson diary project. Edward Nelson was an American ornithologist who was responsible for collecting many of the objects in NMNH’s Yup’ik collection during his 1881 expedition. The recent discovery of his original diary instigated a need to expand on Smithsonian’s historical research and the recent exhibition provided a venue to present modern culture with historical research.
