Pi'eep Karu Payeem: Long Ago and Today
The premise of this catalog and exhibit is to present a long view of Karuk culture from pre-contact times. Several items in the collection were documented as pre-contact items. Presenting Karuk culture as a continuum meant locating and bringing together the old objects with works created more recently. There is a wide range of traditional arts objects, the basketry, ceremonial regalia and more, as well as examples of contemporary traditional and fine arts: pottery, paintings, photography and basketry and ceremonial objects.
