Jonathan Malindine, PhD student in Sociocultural Anthropology, has been featured in Hakai Magazine. This magazine which focuses on science, society, and the environment from a coastal perspective takes a look at Malindine's research on Halibut Hooks and its importance in Alaska Native identity. Malindine has conducted month-long research on these wood hooks at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum Support Center where he studied and photographed the specimens. This work eventually culminated into a book called Northwest Coast Halibut Hooks that he hopes will accompany the resurgence of interest in these tools.
