Smoked Grass Baskets

These beautiful  smoked grass baskets are decorated in a small town on the Kenai  Peninsula by local artists.  Imagine natives sitting around the campfire and passing around community food.  That still happens in places like Barrow, Ak. with whale meat and blubber. The whole community shares the bounties from nature with the Elders who are unable to hunt getting a share. Nothing goes to waste.
