Yup'ik/Alaska Native contemporary and traditional arts and crafts
Yup'ik woman from Akiacuaq (Akiachak) Alaska, living in Fairbanks Alaska. Alaska Native Artist. I am a poet! I am a wife of an amazing man from South Lake Tahoe, CA and a mother of two children. I enjoy the outdoors in Alaska. I made a Yup'ik woman's traditional fancy parka, "Qaliq." I am in a process of working on a child size parka and other Yup'ik traditional clothing. I share wonderful things about Alaska, the arts and the outdoors.
It’s been months since I’ve posted on my website. Burnt out is no joke, life changes will get to you! New environment and unfamiliar places put you on guard! Let’s live for tomorrow – mask up and GIVE EACH OTHER space! During these changing times, I’ve made things and wrote poems. You see, everyone doesn’t need to know everything but you support those you love wherever they are, sometimes with silence (prayer) and sometimes loud!
Snow is still coming down in Alaska. Enjoy it while it lasts!
