Where are you finding your medicine?

In this final episode from Alaska’s First Just Transition Summit we visit with Naomi Michalsen.
Naomi Michalsen, Kaasei and Daaw Da Oo (Tlingit names), is Wooshkeetaan, Eagle/Wolf of the Shark House of Berners Bay, Alaska. Naomi and her husband live in Ketchikan and have 5 adult children, and 9 grandchildren.
