If you head to Unalaska's Museum of the Aleutians Instagram page, you'll quickly notice a number of posts about local places, ranging from the iconic Mount Ballyhoo to often overlooked places, like the turnout on the S-curves, overlooking Unalaska Bay.

Since late June, Unalaska's Museum of the Aleutians has been publishing a series of Instagram posts about historically and locally significant places on the island.

Museum Education Outreach Manager Thomas Drennan McLenigan started the series shortly after he arrived on the island this summer, and said the posts were inspired by some of the hiking he had done in the past.

In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day, which took place on Monday, admission to Unalaska's Museum of the Aleutians will be free to the public through Saturday. 

Museum Director Ginny Hatfield said the museum will also be celebrating the holiday through a social media campaign in an effort to decolonize the nation's history. Museum staff plan to use the campaign as a platform to speak with Indigenous people in the region, as well as Unangax̂ community members.
