"Agayuliyararput: Our Way of Making Prayer--The Living Tradition of Yup'ik Masks" opens at the National Museum of the American Indian's George Gustav Heye Center in New York. Planned by Alaskan Native peoples in collaboration with the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, the creation of this exhibition offered Yup'ik people the first opportunity to exhibit their masks in the context of the dances, the stories, and the complex cosmology of the people who created them.
