Published in conjunction with an exhibit organized by the Anchorage Museum of History and Art and the Coastal-Yukon Mayors' Association. For the Yup'ik of southwestern Alaska, masked dancing has long been a focal point of ceremonial activity. Two hundred color plates and 100 b&w photo illustrate historical and contemporary masks and dance ornaments and the people who make and use them. Chapters arranged geographically describe the world's major Yup'ik mask collectors and collections and the circumstances that make each unique. Voices of Yup'ik elders are present throughout the text, recounting stories, describing traditional Yup'ik life, and responding to particular masks. The price is $60 until January 1, 1997. 9x12" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
