Quote: "Being Alaska Native means a lot to me. My heritage and culture are a big part of my identity. It is interesting to hear about other cultures during this month. It makes me proud to be able to share with others stories from my culture and be able to learn about other cultures as well. I am glad that there is a month especially for Native Americans. It brings everyone just a little closer together."
