“I am indebted to Sealaska Heritage Institute, as it has given me the unique opportunity to work closely with Sealaska shareholders. My job was to assist and teach the next generation of upcoming leaders the ways of our ancestors. Watching the young students grow as a person and find a great love for their culture is precious and inspiring sight to see.”
