Iqyan in Akutan
Back in 2004 I was up in Akutan, AK helping Kurt Schmidt and his junior high and high school class build some skin on frame baidarkas or iqyan in Unangam Tunuu, the Aleut language. After I left, Kurt and class finished a bunch of the baidarkas.
Just the other day, Kurt sent me a picture someone had taken back in 2008. Apparently the baidarkas are still cruising around on their home ground.
And here's some photos from 2004.
