The Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center’s Yakutat Seal Camps project is a multidisciplinary study of 900 years of interaction between people, seals and glaciers at Yakutat Bay, Alaska. Join us for a journey into Yakutat’s history. We’ll hear about the anthropology projects underway to elucidate how Yakutat Bay was peopled, and how Alaska Native oral histories in the region compliment the science.
