Kodiak Island


Throughout the Harriman Expedition, party members were approached by Alaska Natives to trade for souvenirs. At the Baranov Museum in Kodiak, we saw what people at the turn of the century might have purchased in the Kodiak area. All these objects are property of the Baranov Museum and were catalogued by the Kodiak Historical Society. These moccasins were made of moose hide, with a cotton fabric lining. The beadwork reads "1903 Souvenir." (Photo by Allison Sayer).
