Where do they live?






Alaska Map with Language Groups


Most of my carvings are by artists from the Siberian and Central Yupik with a few from the northern region of Alaska where the Inupiat call home.  These regions are represented in the above map by the areas of Alaska shaded in royal blue and light blue respectively.

However, it is important to note, that while Alaskan artists have a strong sense of their cultural heritage and ties to ancestoral lands, many of the more remote artists for various reasons have relocated from their ancestoral homes to communities in Nome, Anchorage, and other sites.
