           An artist who hails from Kodiak has received an award from the United States Artist Fellows program. Alutiiq mask maker Perry Eaton was selected to receive a grant for 50,000 dollars for his work in the craft. Eaton has been focused on the traditional art form since 2000. He was one of the artists who travelled to Russia with the Autiiq Museum to see the original masks on display there. He said he then became "artistically fixated" on creating Alutiiq masks after seeing pictures of them taken by Helen Simeonoff during her visit to the Chateau-Musee in France. Eaton said he was motivated by his love for the masks. He credits artists such as Jacob Simeonoff for paving the way for other Alutiiq mask makers.

            In comments he wrote following his selection for the honor, Eaton said that he's inspired by all Alaska Native culture and that he's glad the cultures are becoming more widely valued. He mentioned groups in Kodiak that he says are contributing to the increased interest and appreciation of Alutiiq culture such as the Alutiiq Museum, the Kodiak Area Native Association, the dance groups, all of the tribal and village corporations, as well as the school district.
