Yup’ik

Ade’! My name is Deenaalee Hodgdon and I am Deg Xit’an Athabaskan and Sugpiaq from the villages of Anvik and South Naknek. I focus primarily on climate resilience, Arctic sustainability, fisheries management and increasing access and visibility of Indigenous people in the outdoor recreation world. Last spring I spent time in Washington, D.C. intering at the Polar Institute where I worked on Arctic security issues and pushing for more Indigenous seats at the table. I will be completing my Bachelor of Arts degrees in anthropology and public policy this fall at Brown University. I look forward to growing and learning from Fireweed Collective as we pursue alternative ways relating, collaborating, and building momentum with each other through compassion and radical resistance.
