When I was a kid my family spent summers in Tununak, my dad’s home village on the shores of the Bering Sea. One of my favorite things to do was to go upriver with my Ap’a (grandpa) to check his nets for whitefish and trout. This mask represents those times, and I wanted the fish to have a dreamy feel to capture the ways our childhood memories continue to impact our lives.
