A pair of Yup'ik masks are displayed at right, Thursday, Oct. 25, 2018, at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, as curator Sean Mooney shows the very same masks being worn by their creator, an Alaskan Shaman name Agyatciaq while holding his son Robert, in portraits taken in 1906. Nearly 64 years after his death, French artist Henri Matisse has become one of the few non-Native Americans to have an exhibition at the Heard Museum dedicated to Native culture.
