Guy Yuksuk

Guy, 'Guyyuksuk' is a a member of the proud Yup'ik Nation, and is a practitioner of Yuuyaraq.

Born and raised in western Alaska, Guy comes from a Yup'ik father and a white mother which gives him a unique perspective of both cultures. Growing up in poverty and conditions unheard of in American standards, Guy and his family relied on subsistence hunting and fishing to fill their freezer chests . Guy learned that in a harsh world, you're the only one who can determine your own destiny.

Guy aspires to finish school and become a writer and advocate for native peoples across the country. In the coming years, he expects to publish stories about the invisible unseen side of rural Alaska in his series, "The Real, Alaska Bush People".
