Quote: "Being Alaska Native means walking in two worlds - the cultural world and the modern world. The challenge is to adhere to our cultural knowledge, values and beliefs while still working and excelling in the modern world and making a positive difference and contribution to not only the Alaska Native community but the larger community."
