Hello, my name is Piquuraq Aguvluk. I am from Wainwright, Alaska. I am a teacher at Qargi Academy.

To me, passing down traditional and cultural knowledge is important. Our youth must know who we are, how our ancestors endured and strived to survive off our land and what they fought for to keep their families, surroundings and animals safe. I love working with our youth.

As adults we must be good mentors so we can make a difference in our youth who are our future leaders.
