Organized by the Anchorage Museum, the exhibit Dena’inaq’ Huch’ulyeshi: The Dena’ina Way of Living is coming to Fairbanks Arts Association’s Bear Gallery for September 2015 thanks to generous support provided by the Rasmuson Foundation.
About half of Alaska’s residents live in traditional Dena’ina territory but have little knowledge about the indigenous people who have called South-Central Alaska home for centuries. The Anchorage Museum changed that with the first major exhibition ever presented about the Dena’ina Athabascan people. This exhibit demonstrates that, although Dena’ina have experienced life-altering changes during the past 200 years, many core values and traditions survive.
Dena’inaq’ Huch’ulyeshi: The Dena’ina Way of Living, will be on view at the Fairbanks Association’s Bear Gallery from September 4 through 26, 2015. The gallery is located on the 3rd Floor of the Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts, Pioneer Park, 2300 Airport Way. Gallery hours are from Noon to 6pm, Tuesday through Saturday. There is no admission charge to enter the gallery. The exhibition is comprised of Dena’ina art and artifacts on view in the Bear Gallery as well as a film series, lecture and workshop held in the Pioneer Park Theater and Blue Room in the Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts.
