Karluk (Kallut) - Description



Karluk, circa 1900. A traditional Alutiiq ciqluaq (house, often referred to as barabara) is seen to the right of a wooden kayak frame. To the left is a smokehouse with fish drying on racks. Across the lagoon are barracks where cannery workers lived. Ships that took canned salmon and seasonal workers back to San Francisco can be seen in the background.
