"Creek 'cut bank' as it erodes from season to season from thousands of years of 'those whom walked this way.' Up and down the river systems I traverse, are feeder creeks that harbor ancient settlements, villages, of Inuit, nomads, moving up and down the tributaries, in search for seasonal migrations, of caribou, and fish. It is common to discover artifacts about these systems, it is however uncommon to discover such sculptures of ancient folks that lived here, especially in the creeks they often camped. Their children, especially the girls, carried their treasured dolls about for their joy, as the boys carried toy...bows with arrows and harpoons."
