There are many types of masks in Alaskan Native culture. This mask that you see to my left is a Raven mask used for spiritual ceremonies and gatherings of the people. Many of the artists put lots of hard working hours making the mask and they symbolize culture and the way life should be for granted. Here is a link to the website so you can look at the many masks that artists have made.http://www.alaskanativeartists.com/

I like your choice of the mask; however, your forgot to mention the tribe to which the mask belongs to. Also, your link is not a link. Other than that, great job, GABBY:)
