In 1909, nearly 4 million people attended the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition (A-Y-P) at the University of Washington campus and put Seattle
on the map. The exposition celebrated the explosion of development in
Washington State since the 1897 Yukon Gold Rush and showcased the
resources of the region. The A-Y-P Exposition also highlighted the people
and cultures of the Pacific Rim, displaying many ethnographic objects that
now reside in the Burke Museum's permanent collection.
years later, the Burke Museum has organized A-Y-P: Indigenous Voices
Reply, an exhibit that will juxtapose historic objects and photographs
from the 1909 fair with contemporary artwork by Native artists to explore
how the representation and understanding of indigenous people and cultures
has changed over 100 years.
The Burke Museum invites you to the
University of Washington campus-wide commemoration of A-Y-P centennial
events featuring a preview of this new exhibit.

Shaft construction has been proceeding
rapidly, with the last of these massive underground structures west of
