Kodiak College offers new class in Alutiiq history

KODIAK — Alutiiq history will be the focus of a new class to be offered at Kodiak College, starting in January.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror says the teacher of the class is Marnie Leist, curator of collections at the Alutiiq Museum in Kodiak.

The class is called “Arrows, Mauls, and Awls: Objects of Prehistoric Life On Kodiak.” The class will run between Jan. 16 and May 1.

The class will teach students about prehistoric Alutiiq objects and how they were used. Students also will look at more recent time periods.

Leist says students will be able to access some of the museum’s collections because of her dual role with the college and as curator.

The class will meet once weekly. There also will be online assignments.
