Organized through a collaboration among Yup'ik elders of southwestern Alaska, the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, and the Anchorage Museum Association, the Agayuliyararput (Our way of making prayer) exhibit features more than 200 masks from international collections. The masks are displayed in the context of dance performances, ceremonies, the stories they tell, and the complex cosmology of the Yup'ik people who created them.
