To say I'm proud of this girl just isn't enough. With all the odds stacked against you Leiloa you persevered and accomplished what you set out to do. Congratulations on graduating from Alaska Military Youth Academy. You did that!!! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you. God loves you Loa and so do I!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #AMYA#2017#denaina

Met with Curtis McQueen and Chief Lee Stephan of Eklutna, Inc. and the Eklutna Tribe. Learned a tremendous amount about the people upon whose land Anchorage was founded, and the corporation that is the largest private landholder here today. #Eklutna #Denaina #Anchorage

Those Alaska sunsets ❤️ Alaska I love you. I’ve missed you. #indigenoushomelands #alaskalife #northernlights #cookinlet #denaina

"Today your host is" is a project of the Anchorage Museum recognizing the indigenous names of people and places in Anchorage and throughout Alaska. The Dena-ina are the original settlers of Anchorage. Alaska is spelled backwards because it is not recognized as an indigenous name. #anchoragemuseum #anchorage #alaska #denaina

Ink concept sketch for my new art collection titled Apollo's Siheyuan.
This series I'm currently producing is inspired by architecture and physical forms created out of the world's religious traditions and spiritual practices. The title combines two concepts of spirituality that influence lifestyle and human experience into a singular trans-cultural idea: the Hellenic god of light, music, and art, Apollo, and the siheyuan, a classical era Chinese residential complex designed to reflect Confucian principles of nature. This art series reflects my appreciation for beautiful and captivating physical representations of divine principles from large scale designs to the most subtle of abstractions in domestic life.

The first exhibit of this collection will be in December 2018 at the Bunnell Street Arts Center in Homer, Alaska. 🎨argentkvasnikoff.com☁ 👕society6.com/argentkvasnikoff🖋 #art #abstract #alaska #ink #drawing #pens #calligraphy #language #modern #style #homeralaska #kenaipeninsula #ninilchik #denaina #dene #nativeamerican #indigenous #writing #writingsystems #society6 #religion #spirituality #architecture #painting

October 18th is officially Alaska Day and even though it's not necessarily a celebratory holiday I decided to commemorate it with my own contribution to the state's symbolism.
With much mental work and research I stretched my writer's muscle and wrote a Dena'ina language version of the state's anthem/song written in English, Eight Stars of Gold. It is always challenging to write in a second language but I found doing this was even more difficult than other languages I have written in before. Without a literary tradition and living native speakers of my dialect I only had my creative instinct to make symbolic and metaphorical phrasing and balanced phonetic flow.

Alaska now has 21 official languages, indigenous ones such as Dena'ina included, and has large populations of native speakers of several others including Spanish, Korean, and Tagalog. I wanted to pay tribute to this linguistic diversity by creating new lyrics in my own culture's language. This version is written to be both as close as possible to match the meaning and significance of the original essay and poem with a few more Dena'ina specific elements, and it is also a near exact match of the song pattern in syllable and rhyme.

This image is of a quick water brush version I wrote in my Dena'ina alphabet as well as a Latin script version. I will be posting more about the full translation and a related project on my website in the near future. Please read about the history of the state song and the flag, it is very unique and a great story.

Happy Alaska Day! 🎨argentkvasnikoff.com☁ #art #abstract #alaska #ink #drawing #pens #calligraphy #language #linguistics #modern #style #homeralaska #kenaipeninsula #ninilchik #denaina #dene #nativeamerican #indigenous #alphabet #writing #writingsystems #songs #music #alaskaday #holidays

Idahdi (hello friend)! Welcome to Daja Designs. A little about me, I'm an Alaska native artist who is working on the evolution of traditional materials. I've been working on a collection of wearable art called the Kindling Collection which uses birchbark to create jewelry and other fashions. Birchbark has been used by Athabascan people for thousands of years, mostly out of utility, but I decided I wanted to see what else I could do with this medium and so far I've been blown away by the possibilities! Birchbark can be very malleable and I enjoy the experimentation process! My etsy page is up, link in bio, check it out and message me if you have any questions about anything! Chin'an! #nativeart#traditionalartist#aboriginal#aboriginalart#alaskanative#nativeamerican#americanindian#athabascan#denaina#alaska#alaskan#falltime#fallcolors#winteriscoming#follow#share#tagsomeone#nativeartist#handmadeaccessory#handmadejewelry#birchbark#birchtrees#birch#bark#fashionable#stylish#ootd#whattowear#trending#artistsoninstagram

This year I've donated one of my favorite calligraphic paintings for the Pratt Museum's art auction at the annual Ritz gala fundraising event. "Ggagga" is an ink on clayboard panel painting that tells the story of the giant spirit bear Ggagga who was tasked by the divine to create a new fertile land between the ice field home of the ice spirits and the ocean home of the water spirits. By dragging his claws through the ground from the mountainsides to the ocean, Ggagga created the five rivers of the southern Kenai Peninsula, making the perfect place for people, plants, and animals to live.
The auction happens at the museum itself this year on October 21st, and check out @pratt_museum for info about the preview showcase.

Happy Grandparents Day America! I was fortunate to know 3 of 4 grandparents and have them in my life for a good amount of time. My grandma Nora was the last of the Susitnuht'ana (Sand River People) to be born there in the early 20s. Both my grandmas came from Susitna Station, a village that died out in the early 30s. Miss them all. Rest In Peace. #nulchina #skyclan #tulchina #waterwayclan #denaina #denainacountry

Something I've put a lot of effort into in phases over the last month. This 3d printed pottery I'm calling the Naqaghuqesi Vessel was made with one of my designs printed in superfine definition black PLA. It was then heated and hand-shaped warm, and I then texturized it with a semi-gloss stone effect. The small stars on the Big Dipper constellation are each set with a 3mm cut natural iolite. The original printing took 50 hours alone! 🎨argentkvasnikoff.com☁ 👕society6.com/argentkvasnikoff🖋 #art #abstract #alaska #ink #drawing #pens #calligraphy #modern #style #homeralaska #kenaipeninsula #ninilchik #denaina #dene #nativeamerican #indigenous #alphabet #decor #pottery #plastic #3dprinting #iolite
