Baranov Museum gets grant to preserve jackets

Posted: Friday, July 10, 2009

KODIAK - The Baranov Museum in downtown Kodiak has been awarded a $7,440 grant to help preserve four gut skin jackets.

The Alutiiq people of Kodiak Island created and wore the garments made of bear, sea mammal esophagus and intestines.

Katie Oliver, the museum's executive director, says members of the community will be invited to events where they can learn more about the jackets and the work to preserve them.

The Alaska State Museum awarded the grant. Its mission is to identify, collect, preserve and exhibit the state's material and natural history.
