Description: At first I thought these were ivory carvings, but a closer look (and wondering where the ivory would come from) made me think these were actually made from whale bones. Either way, these native works of art were very nice

Description: A woman demonstrates how babies are lifted and then carried on their backs to keep them warm (and out of the way) while doing routine activities. This isn’t just a thing of the past; this type dress and mode of baby transportation was seen throughout my stay in Barrow

Description: Erosion of the cliff at the edge of the ancient village has exposed some whale bones. Since they were used to construct the homes as explained by sign, I wonder if these were remnants of those homes or more recently beached bones

Description: This was our view from inside the restaurant. It’s hard to see, but the ice, along with a few areas of meltwater, goes from the shore to just about the horizon. Open water appears to be the bright line along the horizon. The mounds shown in the land outside the window were the remnants of an ancient village that we walked through after dinner

Description: This is a closer shot of the map on the search and rescue logo to give you an idea of where Kaktovik is (furthest to the right) compared to where we were in Barrow (furthest north, center). The distance between the two was several hundred miles, but still close enough to make us aware of dangers on the north slope
