Local Alaska Native Artist and owner of Crazy Wolf Studio - Ken Decker
Local artist and shop owner Ken Decker (Tsimshian) displayed for the camera Sunday afternoon his recently completed Wolf drum. The drum is made from yellow cedar (hoops) and covered with Sitka black tail deer hide. The wolf design is Decker's own. It took Decker 16 to 18 hours to complete the drum from start to finish. During the winter months Decker teaches Alaska Native carving and drum making at the Totem Heritage Center.
