fish camp

From the moment I jumped into the boat to head my Jijuu’s fish camp, I could literally feel my mind ease and my body begin to let go of tension and stress.


Grad 2017

This class consists of eleven graduates, all from our little community of 900 people. To me, this class represents hard work, persistence and intelligence.

My Jijuu

On the day that I was born, my Jijuu Christie Thompson gave me my Gwich’in name, “Gwikitch’ihkh’eh”, which means “In Return” because, as she said, I was the life given after his life was taken.


Bradley; I will always remember…

He was humble. He carried himself with a calm sense of confidence. He was a son and a brother. He was a man of the Lord.


the love of photography

I have made it a personal goal of mine to always carry my camera with me when I spend time with my Jijuu, because she’s always teaching me something new – from tanning a moose hide to setting a net under the ice in -40.
