Artist bio:

My name is Ivory Agaluk Okleasik.  I come from Sitnasuak Alaska.  My parents are Denise Oliver and Buddy Okleasik.  My grandparents are Franklin and Lavonne Okleasik and Carol and Curt Oliver.  I have three sisters and our mother passed away in 2012 due to alcohol poisoning.  Our people have faced a lot through historic trauma, intergenerational trauma, and complex trauma.  We are ready to heal from colonization and racism. We are ready to raise and speak our words.  We are ready to do this together.  We all come from some kind of trauma and know that the trauma we face makes us who we are today and that we are not alone.
