For Thousands of years, Alutiiq people lived in sod houses and hunted sea mammals, relying on special technologies, ancestral knowledge, and spiritual assistance to care for their families.  The Cape Alitak petroglyphs are one of the only written records of their way of life.  Pecked into Kodiak’s granite bedrock, images of people and animals preserve customs from the Alutiiq past.  Museum scientists explain amazing history.  We learn about the remarkable environment that surrounds Cape Alitak while hearing the stories its sites reveal.

Produced with support from the Alutiiq Museum, the National Park Service Shared Beringian Heritage Program and a Tribal Historic Preservation grant, the videos document recent archaeological research on Kodiak rock art.
