Set of Yup'ik masks reunited in Alaska after more than a century

It's a reunion that's been more than a century in the making — a set of century-old Yup'ik masks have been brought back to Alaska and displayed at the Anchorage Museum. "These masks are well-travelled, and have been separated for so many years," said Monica Shah, director of collections and chief conservator at the museum. "It's really important that they are shared with the Yup'ik community and are able to be brought back, because it is the inheritance of the Yup'ik community."
