Kaktovik numerals

A traditional “base 20” Inupiaq counting system is reborn using a set of unique numerals crafted decades ago by Kaktovik youth to keep traditions alive. In this Denełchin Lab activity, students design and make a clock using design thinking, laser-cutting technology, and resin to produce a modern tool inspired by ancient ways.
