Arctic Studies Center Newsletter from the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History directed by renowned American archaeologist and anthropologist William Fitzhugh. 

Inside you will find two of my articles. I can't express how grateful am I to be published amongst the best scholars in Arctic anthropology. 

I would like to sincerely thank William Fitzhugh for believing in my Arctic Indigenous Fishskin project in the first place and allowing me to pursue the Fulbright award at the Arctic Studies Center last summer. My deepest gratitude to Bill’s wonderful team, they have followed me all through my research with their wise advice and human touch: Stephen Loring, John Cloud and Nancy Shorey. Big thanks also to Igor Krupnik, Maggie Dittemore, David Rosenthal, Felicia Pickering, Alexandra Alvis and Bernadette Engelstad. In Anchorage I would like to specially thank Aron Crowell for allowing me to pursue my research at the Smithsonian Institution Arctic Studies Center, Anchorage Museum and Dawn Biddison. 

Not only I was warmly received, kindly assisted and learnt enormously from each and every one of these individuals, but their warmth and humanity will always stay in my heart.
