UAF Journalism interviewed me as I was helping out at the Festival of Native Arts. Yum!!
While I was down in Bethel, I got to bring on stage, my brother, Alfred and his friend, Christof, in support of Drew’s Foundation suicide prevention effort. They were just amazing. When they were done, I was so emotional about the lyrics, well… just listen– It’s worth it. Anything to stop the cycle of loss…
I was so privileged to be asked down to my home, Bethel, for the 2012 Cama-i Festival! Cama-i needed someone to organize the Miss Cama-i Cultural Pageant and I agreed. 2011 Miss Cama-i Yvonne Jackson, My Dad, and I put on a fun pageant that everyone enjoyed. The whole weekend was filled with dancing, visiting, and more. It was just soooo much fun! Here are some photos from the event. The best part was that I got to spend time with my family who were also very involved in the event. My mom, Cingarkaq, and Vernon Chimegalrea sold tickets for me while I was busy with Miss Cama-i and MC’ing. Thank You Mom and Vernon! Visit bethelarts.com for all of the fun!
As Miss WEIO, one of my duties is to help out with the Festival of Native Arts. I had such a great time! My Mom, Cingarkaq, came up from home and we took it on together. Here are some photos from the event!
