James Carteeti has been carving for over 30 years. He joins host Ellen Lockyer this week on Hometown, Alaska to talk about his work.
Alaska Native art stems from traditions thousands of years old, but now, it’s rocking New York City’s trendy art world. Three Alaska Native artists and Alice Rogoff, who founded New York’s Alaska House and the Alaska Native Arts Foundation join host, Ellen Lockyer on Hometown, Alaska this week to talk about raising the profile of indigenous art – and about making sure artists get fair compensation for their work. We’ll dial up the spotlight on Native art if you’ll dial in with your questions and comments on Hometown, Alaska, Wednesday at 2 pm.
