“Working with Sealaska allowed me the chance to reconnect with the tribe and make connections with some great people. I had the chance to learn about the sustainable efforts the tribe is making as well as the economic struggles and successes that are happening in Southeast Alaska. The internship is a great way to gain exposure to a corporate setting and the culture of our tribes.” – Elle Kasbohm
