Ed. note: Ishmael Hope is a SE Alaska poet, writer and appreciator of family generations:
“My parents– mother Elizabeth Goodwin Hope, Taliiraq, and father Andrew Hope III, Xhaastánch– instilled in me a deep appreciation for my Iñupiaq and Tlingit cultures. My mother spoke to me as a baby about how I would contribute to my community. My father repeatedly had me listen to my Elders. My parents were poets as well, a part of a new, exciting era of multi-ethnic literature. This is my foundation.” ~ from 2014 article on NeverAlone; to read the full article, go here: neveralonegame.com/interview-never-alone-writer-ishmael-hope/
