Unangan (Aleut) men would brave the Bering Sea on the Aleutian Islands in a hand built Baidarka (Aleut Kayak). They wore decorated bentwood hats with long bills making them appear and perhaps even give them the powers of a natural predator. Patterns and animal references were painted and carved to please and respect the hunted. They also represented the success of their hunts. The more elaborate the hat, the more prominent the man. They wore parkas called a Kamleika, usually made from seal and sea lion gut.

 

This card is an artistic interpretation. Please note, the ink characteristics are intended to have a raw and rustic look. This is the style of the print, showing authenticity as a hand printed piece.  Card size  is  5" x 7". Comes with envelope, description on back and compostable protective bag.
