Stereotypes about Native people.Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I don’t know. Maybe doing a PhD in philosophy, or having my own boutique, or being a personal stylist with hip Native fashions – the people in this town could sure use that!

A guy who’s comfortable in his own skin, who can be silly and goofy or dress in a tux for a party at the Met!

1 food item you can’t live without?
Dragon bowl – nothing like some awesome shredded veggies and tofu to rejuvenate the body.
