I had to pick an object for the inspiration of this blog and for another project for one of my classes. We took a little field trip to the Arctic Studies, Smithsonian Institution in Anchorage, Alaska. Before we went, we looked at the Smithsonian website and it had most of their displays online with descriptions of the objects. I knew I wanted to pick something from the Tlingit region, so I looked and I came across this basket and decided I wanted to research it. I have learned so much from the projects I have done with my object. Sometimes it was hard finding information but you just need to learn how to look in the right places.
