Yup’ik Traditions: Qantaq (Bentwood Bowl)

Video from the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center and Anchorage Museum.  The conversation about the life history of a wooden bowl is interesting when thinking about archaeological objects.  I especially enjoyed the discussion of village specific wooden bowl decorations – I am very interested in parallel practices in pottery production techniques and decorations.  On-going research northwest Alaskan pottery vessels indicates sub-regional differences in pottery decorative techniques.
