Masterworks of Yup’ik Science and Survival

The Yup’ik people have no word for science yet their tools were so well designed that they allowed the Yupiit to live in a land no one else would inhabit. The exhibition presents remarkable 19th and early 20th century tools, containers, weapons, watercraft and clothing in an exploration of the scientific principles and processes that have allowed the Yup’ik people to survive in the sub-arctic tundra of the Bering Sea coast.
