Dance-Off

Inupiaq artist James Kivetoruk Moses grew up hunting, trapping and working as a reindeer herder. In 1953, a knee injury made his traditional subsistence lifestyle impossible, so he began his celebrated art career. This painting illustrates a dance competition between two men during Messenger Feast, a month-long festival.
