Alaska Native Collection

Smithsonian Institution. (2002). Alaska native collection: sharing knowledge. Retrieved November 9, 2009 from

The Smithsonian Institution gives, not only, the scientists perspective, but also the elders perspective of the story knife. At first the site starts with telling us the name and what region it came from. Then, the site gives a quote from Neva Rivers. Next, the scientific information is given to us. Last, we are put in the "elders' shoes".

Not only does this site give information about the Yup'ik, but also the Athabaskan, Eyak, Inupiaq, Haida, Northern Siberian, St. Lawrence Island Yup'ik, Sugpiaq, Tlingit, Tsimshian and last Unangan. In these categories are numerous amounts of objects.
