Collection Homecoming!

June 30, 2016

On top of the agenda for our visit this time was discussing the return of the collection to Alaska. Today we met with the Q-Corp board and Rick presented the different options – with our recommendation that the collection be returned to Quinhagak (rather than an already existing facility in Bethel or Fairbanks). The unanimous decision from the board was that the collection should come home – and more than that, they already have the perfect building in place for it! (A former school building that Warren gave us a tour of). So the fantastic news of today it that the Nunalleq collection will be returned and housed in Quinhagak – and a new cultural and archaeological centre. By 2018 you will be able to come here and look at it yourself!

These are exciting times!
