“One thing I am passionate about is a world where Indigenous People thrive and are sovereign. . I run a Youth Program called Arctic Youth Ambassadors. A program that brings together diverse youth from across Alaska to serve as ambassadors for their communities and country in building awareness at home and abroad about life in the Arctic. You can visit: akgeo.org/youth-programs/arctic-youth-ambassadors/ for more information.”

Maka is also a Gen-I Youth Ambassador, as well as, a National Indian Health Board Health Policy Fellow.

Is it ok to create the art work of another tribe? As a kid I was taught Haida art by a Haida artist and I would like to explore it more now. I am part Cree but did not grow up with the culture as my father was put into foster care during the 60’s scoop.
