Chief Son-i-Hat Whale House Restoration Project ~ Phase 1

Phase 1 ~ Immediate Corrective Action:

The irreplaceable House Posts and structure of the Whale House are continuing to suffer from weather and insect damage. It is imperative that Kavilco and OVK initiate immediate action to protect the House Posts from water damage by using selective temporary roof repairs, and to arrest on going insect damage for the House Posts by using a localized heat treatment suggested by the Alaska State Museum conservation staff. $25,000.
