Keixé Yaxtí / Maka, (Tlingit/Mohawk), believes resiliency and humor are important ways to help Native communities.
“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.
