This book contextualizes ivory drill bows from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and National Museum of the American Indian, collected during the late 19th century from the Inuit of Western Alaska, with oral histories gathered from 40 contemporary Alaska Native contributors from Utqiaġvik, Point Hope, Kotzebue, Shishmaref, Nome, St. Michael, and Anchorage. Stories of hunting and community life are included along with illustrations of cultural heritage objects from the Carrie M. McLain Memorial Museum.
