Arctic Studies Center at the Anchorage Museum: Thursday August 4th at noon

In 2015, the Anchorage Museum brought Greenlandic tattoo artist Maya Jacobsen together with Iñupiaq artist Holly Nordlum to collaborate around traditional tattoos. Join Nordlum for an update on this project and accompanying documentary about skin-stitching cultural heritage. 

This event is sponsored by the Recovering Voices Program, an initiative led by the National Museum of Natural History.
