    My Dad was stationed in Kotzebue in 1959-60 and collected all these Eskimo-related items. The dolls I believe are Ethyl Washingon. Curious if they are? They appear to be in mint condition. Dad told me he bought the rest from natives.

      You might know more about these than we do, please provide as many memories from your Dad as you know. Thank you.

      I know nothing more than that he said the woman who made the dolls was featured in National Geographic. Dad was part of Project Plowshare through the National Energy Department. The purpose was the peaceful use of nuclear technology. He set up the camp for the scientists and engineers to work from.

      Dad did mention that the women who made the moccasins used their teeth to create the ridges in the skins around the front, not tooling. He had great respect for the indigenous peoples there.
