Matryoshka Doll Leggings
Sitka has a rich Russian heritage. The New Archangel Dancers have been performing in Sitka and abroad for 40 years. Gina Newkirk, a New Archangel Dancer hand drew the Matryoshka Dolls used on these leggings. There are five different dolls: Gliding, Gypsy, Moldavian, Sarafin, and Ukranian. The dancers perform each of these dances wearing the costumes you see on Gina's Matryoshka dolls. Thanks, Gina!
