Woody Knaebel’s research sheds important light on the Alitak glyphs, the largest known cluster of stationary rock carvings in the region. They provide a rich picture of Alutiiq artistic conventions, symbolic repertoire, and for those who look closely, spiritual beliefs.

Woody Knebel studied marine science at the University of Victoria and spent many years in Bristol Bay, Alaska, working side by side with the Y’upik people. While working at a turn-of-the-century salmon cannery at the south end of Kodiak Island, he came into contact with the aboriginal lands of the Alutiiq people and their ancestors—the creators of the Cape Alitak petroglyphs.
