WHAT I WRITE

I write essays that explore the connection between deeply personal experiences and what I have learned living and teaching in Native Alaskan villages. The essays I have published deal with emotional loss and grieving in the environmental context of the arctic tundra. I am deeply indebted to the people I met and worked with from the Bering Strait to the Chukchi Sea.


 

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.”
