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. 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.

Hello. My name is Rosi. My mom is not Native, but she’s Romanian and has dark hair, hazel eyes, and tan skin. So has her mom and grandmother. My father is Native (Oglala Lakota). I am very, very pasty white, with green eyes, and redish/blonde/light brown hair. I am very involved in my culture, but I still get those natives that treat me like some wannabe wasicu. It is not my fault that I am so white, and I cannot change my skin color, although many times I wish I could. How can I try to make them see that I am just as Native as they are??
