Mother's Day at the Alaska Native Heritage Center

 I was hired by First Alaskans Magazine to take some images at the Alaska Native Heritage Center's free open house on Mother's day. I love the center. It's a great place to see native arts and crafts and to see a wide variety of live performances. Chanting, drumming, dancing, traditional games, you name it!

 It's a wonderful place to become immersed in the First Alaskans world.

 They also had the reenactment sites open with traditionally dressed "actors" explaining how various tribes lived in the past.

 This is a sampling of images. I'm looking forward to getting back out there when summer has really set in and the trees are full and the grasses tall.
