I am Quakaq.  That is my Eskimo name.  I am an indigenous Alaskan.  This is a webpage about technology that I find interesting and find a use for, cultural things that I like to participate in and learn about, and creative ways that I like to express myself.  This webpage will illustrate my pursuits in those three areas.  It will also provide insights into my heritage as an indigenous person.  Any Y’upik words used will have a brief pronunciation if known, and a link to a definition provided by the Y’upik Eskimo dictionary.

I am half Y’upik, with ties to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of Alaska.  If you like what you see, please contact me using the provided contact form.
