National Museum of the American Indian, Washington D.C.: 59 reviews and 268 photos
I've seen numerous old everyday objects of the Yupik people in the National Museum of the American Indian. There are various tools used in fishing (salmons) and hunting (seals) as well as some decorative elements used during ritual dance.
Nowadays there are only about 21,000 Yupik people of whom some 10,000 speak Yupik language. They live along the coast of western Alaska, especially on the Yukon-Kuskokwim delta and along the Kuskokwim River (Central Alaskan Yupik), and in southern Alaska (the Alutiiq).
