In Canada, the Native people are called Inuit. In Alaska, Native people are known as Eskimos. The ethographic artistic expression of the Arctic peoples is as old as the Vikings and the ancient tribes that crossed the Bering Strait. Although, it was never considered as "art" by its makers. (Even today, there is no word in the Inuit language for "art". You'll find examples of Alaskan and Inuit material culture in museums and private collections world-wide. The Arctic art work that makes its way to market in the 21st Century is that which is made primarily for sale, but is faithful to the tribal traditions that have survived the influence of European traders and missionaries. Indigenous art from the Arctic provides powerful imagery and history of these resilient people. Fine Alaskan Eskimo carvers continue to work in wood, remaindered walrus tusks, ossified whale bone and baleen with a finesse and grace that is stunning. Fine Inuit artists carve arresting shamanistic images and compelling effigies of indigenous wildlife from soapstone in a tradition that became popular in the 1930s under the guidance and encouragement of the Canadian government.

Please be advised: Due to the laws of the United States and Canada, works made with parts from marine mammals may not be imported into either country. Therefore any carving we sell that contains walrus tusk, whale bone or other marine mammal material will only be shipped within the United states
