Storms Of Cape Alitak

How nature humbles men and women. Intense storms sweep Cape Alitak, Alaska, interfering with archaeological work and the camera crew documenting the work.

The Alutiiq Museum & Archaeological Repository, FrontierScientists and the video production company WonderVisions present “The Cape Alitak Petroglyphs”, a series of short videos that explore Alutiiq heritage at the southern tip of Kodiak Island. Produced with support from the National Park Service Shared Beringian Heritage program and a Tribal Historic Preservation grant, the videos document recent archaeological research on Kodiak rock art and archaeological findings.
