Tristan is a kind and insightful deep thinker. He connects with Elders and learns cultural practices while working at his family’s fish camp in Nondalton. Additionally, he has interned at a culture camp held on indigenous lands in partnership with Lake Clark National Park. He is stand-out alum of the year long Ilakucaraq cohort, a program that brings together teens from around the state to learn and share about their cultures and build confidence in their cultural identity. Tristan serves as a role model to other youth as someone who lives in the Anchorage area embracing his culture.
