This event has been cancelled. Our apologies for any inconvience.

Eskimo and Inuit people believe all living things, even inanimate objects, possess yua, a spirit or a soul. Carved masks, sculptures, and everyday objects reflect not only their time-honored beliefs and traditions, but also their gratitude and respect for the spirits, animals, land, and sea.
