Alongside the creation of KUCB’s documentary – the Lost Villages Project, the Museum of the Aleutians (MOTA) will offer an exciting new an exhibition called Chiilulix: The Long Journey Home. Chiiulix will be open to the public June 14th, 2019 – March 28, 2020, and will highlight the history of each of the villages in the Lost Villages Project, from prehistory to the evacuation of WWII, along with past and present cultural revitalization projects.
We need your help on the project! We are asking those that were there, or their descendants, to share with us on temporary loan, any Pieces of Memory from the villages that could be shown in the exhibition. This can be anything – a stone picked up on the banks of Biorka, a photo of a family that came from Kashega, or even a personal story. These meaningful pieces reflect a spirit of place along with the memories of those who lived the experience. Collecting and sharing these memories is the heart and soul of what MOTA does!
Whether you live hundreds of miles away from the Aleutians or are a local, MOTA wants to hear from you! The exhibition opens in June so they are working fast – please give them a call at 907-581-5150 or email at Education@aleutians.org. Find more information at Aleutians.org
Attached are a project overview and MOTA’s temporary loan agreement. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested in participating. Donors are also welcome to drop paperwork and items off at the museum; MOTA will return them to you after the exhibition ends on March 28, 2020.
