Business Description/Artwork

I’m Yup’ik from Bethel, AK. My Yup’ik name is Tuqillinguuq. My grandparents are Lott and Elizabeth Egoak Sr. of Akiak, AK. My mother is Nellie and my dad was Harold.
I am a fish skin artist. I make fish skin leather and teach classes on how to make fish skin into leather. I am available to teach classes on how to make fish skin baskets and closes on how to make fish skin leather using two different methods – oil and fat tanned, and bark tanned.
I do classes for a variety of organizations or if I have enough interest, I will sign people up and teach a class via Zoom or in person. Contact me through my FB or Instagram page @creativenativeak – Quyana for your support.
