Uvaŋga Ggaaditmits Ivalu Erin Gingrich. Hello, I am Erin Gingrich (Ggaadimits and Ivalu are my Indigenous names). I am an Alaska Native Artist, UAF graduate (B.F.A. Class of ’14) and Program Assistant for an Alaska Native nonprofit that supports Alaska Native Arts and Culture. I am taking this class to gain some perspective about museums from different view point as I have been fortunate to view a number of collections for artist research and I also look forward to gaining some understanding of the history, goals and evolution of museums. Quyanaqpuk (Thank you) and I look forward to spring semester with you all.
P.S. If you are interested, my artist website can be found here: https://ggaadimitsivalu.com/
