Reviving the art of making Iñupiat Mukluks

Season 8 Episode 18 | 5m 15s

Mukluks are traditional boots worn by indigenous Arctic people around the world. Mukluks are very versatile and are worn to sneak up on seals while hunting, for traditional dances, and for formal occasions like weddings. The process of sewing mukluks has become less common in recent years, but Mary Lou Sours is working to change that and reconnect people to this cultural tradition.
