Special order of @montana_colors spray paints from Homer Art & Frame. It's challenging to source some materials due to strict shipping laws to Alaska from the mainland U.S. but this shop always makes it happen for me. 🎨argentkvasnikoff.com☁ 👕society6.com/argentkvasnikoff🖋 #art #artsupplies #spraypaint #abstract #alaska #pens #language #linguistics #homeralaska #kenaipeninsula #ninilchik #denaina #dene #nativeamerican #indigenous

Happy #childrensbookweek! All week we’ll be highlighting a favorite book for young readers. Today it’s all about our raven friend, Chulyen! Authors @barbaraatwater and Ethan Atwater excitedly hold a copy of #HowRavenGotHisCrookedNose, a story about the trickster raven and what happens one day when he loses his nose.

Athabascan Russian Orthodox Church and cemetery In Eklutna, Alaska. These #spirithouses are built after a loved one passes, to shelter their grave. Many have a Pendleton blanket between the ground and the house. The graves of non-natives are piled high with domes of rocks. The log building on the left is the oldest standing building in Alaska, dating to 1830, it was the original Orthodox Church and was used until the copper domed Church was erected in 1960. Mike and I were the only people here today. #denaina #athabascan #eklutna
