Happy Birthday to my late paternal grandma Nora McCord. She would have been 95 today. Gone but definitely not forgotten. RIP #tulchina #waterwayclan #denaina #denainacountry

Dena'ina care package. A bag of sand from our beach (our ancestors would rub this on their feet when they were homesick) A straw made from a hollow swan bone (girls would drink through this when they were coming of age) #denaina #alaska #indigenous #culture

"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

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

Year 2000 and 2017. Time flies! Very proud of my niece. She got a four year scholarship to St Lawrence University in Canton, New York for this fall. Good to see lots of young native kids heading off to college this fall. #denaina #nulchina #skyclan #sancarlosapache

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

Muldoon Town Square Park has a new name - Chanshtnu Muldoon Park!
🌾
Chanshtnu is the Dena'ina word, meaning grass creek, for the Chester Creek, which winds through the park and served as a major fishing site; Muldoon pays homage to an early homesteader, Arnold Muldoon.
🌾
Thank you to the community members who served on the naming committee to come up with a fitting name for this beautiful new park.
