Alutiiq Alaskan style hunting hat

Alutiiq Alaskan style hunting hat

This diminutive hunting hat was a collaborative creation by Hawaiian artist Marques Marzan with assistance from Alaskan artist Lalla Williams during the 2005 ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations) Artist Exchange held at the Peabody Essex Museum.  Although the materials are innovative, the basic style and form of the hat are typical of the Alutiiq region of Alaska. copyright © Dan Gair
