Anaktuvuk Pass mask on display at the Sheldon Jackson Museum


The museum has little information on the mask, but it was collected by former Sheldon Jackson Museum curator Esther Billman and purchased from Willie Hugo of Anaktuvuk Pass for $22. The details on the January Artifact of the Month and the time period in which it could have been purchased suggest that the mask is probably a later piece made in the 1960s or 1970s. SITKA — The Sheldon Jackson Museum’s January Artifact of the Month is an Inupiaq mask (SJ-II-DD-3). The mask will be exhibited until Jan. For more information on the mask, go to museums.alaska.gov/documents/sjm/artifacts/jan_2017.pdf.

It can be seen Tuesday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 31.
