A new exhibit opens at Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana on Saturday, May 4. “CAKARPEKNAKI: With Respect and Without Waste” celebrates the culture and traditions of Alaskan natives through a carved ivory collection recently donated to the museum by member Hugh Magnussen in honor of his wife, Jutta. The term “cakarpeknaki” means “with respect and without waste,” which reflects the respect felt by the indigenous people of Alaska towards the animals, people and the land and speaks to the connections among these three. The artwork is carved meticulously from walrus tusk, fossilized mammoth, and whale bone and teeth.

Also on Saturday, May 4, the museum invites people to stop by to enjoy the ledger and beadwork art by Blackfeet artist, James Redfox, from Browning. The museum’s May “First Saturday” artist will be at the museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to exhibit and talk about his artwork. Redfox is a self-taught artist who began beading in 1991. This pictorial art form tells stories with drawings filled in with bright colors on ledger paper.

Light refreshments will be on hand, and the museum entry fee is half priced. The museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
