In Masterworks of Yup'ik Science and Survival, Yup'ik elders examine tools and daily-use items, explaining how they were made and for what purpose. Survival in the harsh subarctic environment requires great resourcefulness and ingenuity, and the Yup'ik people of southwestern Alaska meet the challenge by using traditional technology and by following a philosophy that recognizes the personhood of all living things and the environment.
