Here are a few process pics from today’s @GoogleDoodles celebrating Tlingit civil rights leader Elizabeth Peratrovich. Gunalchéesh for all of the support from near and far —I think it’s fair to say that Alaska was pretty excited about this today!! 😆
Her words inspired change. Her perseverance led to a more equitable future.
Today's #GoogleDoodle honors Alaska Native Elizabeth Peratrovich who helped establish the 1st anti-discrimination law in the U.S. ⚖️

This was such a fun project working with @GoogleDoodles and I’m so excited share it now with all of you! I’ve grown up hearing about the incredible Elizabeth Peratrovich in our community and family. It was an honor to illustrate her.
We Are Water Protectors has been so lovingly embraced this year. It has been a joy to see and I am so so grateful for all of the support. @CaroleLindstrom wrote such an important story and it was a privilege to help bring it to life. Gunalchéesh! @MacKidsBooks @MacKidsSL
A new comic book co-written by Chag Lowry & myself about California Indian women & our basketry traditions. There is also an accompanying teachers aid for educators to include in their curriculm. Huge thanks to California Indian Basket Weavers Association & Blue Lake Rancheria.
I’ve been spending a lot of time at my art packaging table this season, and I’m so so thankful for each and every order that comes in. I’ll be closing my art shop tomorrow so there’s still a little time to get those last minute orders in! Gunalchéesh 🤗
