This would be good as a serving platter. Lots of maktak [whale skin with blubber] could go on that!

—Ron Brower, Sr., 2002

This very large dish has a two-part bentwood rim and a solid wood bottom. Individuals ate from small dishes, while large bowls like this were for presenting food at whaling festivals and winter feasts. When a person died, his eating dish was hung on one of the posts that marked his grave.
