Collections Administration

Three documents govern the museum's collections - a Collections Policy, a Collections Plan, and Guidelines for the Spiritual Care of Objects. Together, these documents reflect the museum's desire to unite Alutiiq values with the best practices of museum science to provide exception collections care.

Caring for Artifacts of Uncertain Origin

In 2007, the Alutiiq Museum developed a memorandum of understanding with Kodiak's major land owners for the care of archaeological finds whose origins and ownership are unknown.  Under the agreement, the museum may hold these objects in trust for the public, insuring that they are respectfully treated and used for educational purposes. To learn more about the unprovenienced objects in the museum’s care, or for information on how you can become a signer to the agreement, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
