Posted: August 28, 2014 - 9:09am

The Pratt Museum holds a closing celebration for “Dena’inaq’ Huch’ulyeshi: The Dena’ina Way of Living” on Friday. At 7 p.m., Lake Clark National Park cultural anthropologist Karen Evanoff presents “Ye’uh Qach’ Dalts’iyi: What We Live on from the Outdoors.” Evanoff, a Dena’ina tribal member from Nondalton discusses Dena’ina subsistence, fish camp and traditional knowledge.

Following her talk, the museum holds a reception outdoors in the south parking lot with live music by Yada Di, a band that plays funk, blues, rock, country jazz, hip-hop, trip-hop, soul, pure improv and cinematic fusion. Musicians Yngvil Vatn Guttu, Lena Lukina and Allison Warden (AKU-MATU) are the core members of Yada Di. “Yada Di” is a Dena’ina word that means “what is this?” and is a term used to ask a question about something that is hard to define.

“The Dena’ina Way of Living” remains on view through Labor Day, Sept. 1.
