The word “enaa” is Athabascan for “love” or “beloved”.

The materials incorporated into this mask honor ideas, experiences and people who are important to the artist. Caribou horn in this piece represents the Caribou Clan. The milagro is representative of things dear to us. The fishing poles stand in for a subsistence lifestyle. The ribbons are from the Nulato Stickdance ceremony for the dead.
