Modern Alaskan Native Materials Culture

Collection of objects of material culture to be used for exhibits showing the rapid changes in the culture of the natives of Alaska and adaptation to those changes. ABSTRACT: Phase I: documentation of the rapid acculturation of the native people of Alaska by collecting objects of material culture that illustrate this change and devlopment of a systemized approach to recording the use and cultural context of these materials. Phase II: collection, supported by sociological information, will be basis of two types of interpretive exhibits directed toward 1) urban populations, predominantly new Alaskans and unaware of the social and economic situation outside of the urban area; and 2) the rural, isolated population, predominantly native, which needs insight and understanding of its own adaptation through time to help it survive in a changing society. Total project designed to illustrate the adaptability of Alaskan native populations to constant pressures for change. Provides some insights into the way this change may continue without the complete loss of cultural activities. Funds for Phase I: salaries (PI and assistants), informants, supplies, travel, indirect costs.
