Naguruk, Nuguruk, and Nunuk

As per Dorothy Jean Ray in her book A Legacy of Arctic Art, page 148, “I saw names like “Nunuk” and “Nuguruk” inscribed on pieces at a time when most ivory art was anonymous; few Eskimos in the Nome vicinity signed their work, and if they did, they used a binomial….. I later learned that these objects were made in Seattle, usually mass-produced from a master copy by non-Eskimos in several manufacturing firms.  Typical northern subjects were engraved on ivory pieces, usually elephant ivory, with a tag “genuine ivory”, which were then sent to Alaska, where customers mistakenly thought they were buying Eskimo-made objects of walrus ivory,”

We would still like to display these pieces to educate ivory sellers and buyers.
