For Immediate Release
October 25, 2021

Juneau – Two dozen Chilkat and Ravenstail woven robes were brought together for the first time, telling the story from origins to present day. To celebrate the robes, their histories, and their weavers at the end of the exhibit, members of the All Nations dance group Yées Ku.oo donned a selection of the robes and danced them back into accessible storage, where most will be returned to their owners and clans who regularly use them in ceremonies.

Featuring the Yées Ku.oo dance group: Alfie Price, David Lang, Disney Williams, Heather Evoy, Nancy C. Barnes, and Walter A. Soboleff Jr.

Special thanks to Nancy Kovalic and Ray Watkins for giving permission for their robes to be included and to Lily Hope for organizing this event.

The closing ceremony can be viewed at https://lam.alaska.gov/sway and at ktoo.org/show/at-the-apk/.
