Grantee: Native Village of Eyak

Our village was able to receive a grant from The CIRI Foundation in 2016 to study our local masks and work on making our own stained glass mask, a medium that was new to almost all of us. This was a project that we could not afford to do on our own, and was something the entire community was able to enjoy when they visited our Ilanka Cultural Center for over a month after the masks were completed.

Thank you to The CIRI Foundation!
