Yup’ik Mask, Drum Making & Dance


In this transformational workshop, you will learn from Yup'ik artist, composer, and musician Aassanaaq "Ossie" Kairaiuak. In addition to learning the technical process of making a Yup'ik-style dance mask and drum, you will also learn about the traditional Yup'ik worldview, a philosophy you see infused in all traditional Yup'ik symbols and ancestral root designs.
