An oiled sealskin kayak made around 1850 by Alutiiq artisans in Alaska. Alutiiq women traditionally used sinew and yarn to sew animal skins around kayak frames. Men carved the frame components from driftwood and lashed them together with strands including spruce root fibers. For sea voyages, the boats were stocked with food, water, amulets, kneeling pads and tools for fishing, hunting and making repairs to the exterior skin. Paddlers wore hooded jackets, made from animal intestines.
