Alii! Anklel Citralina Haruo. I am originally from Wisconsin, but now reside in the state of Koror in the Republic of Palau. I am a first generation graduate fromthe College of Menominee Nation in Keshena, WI. I attained my AAS in Natural Resources from this Tribal institution.
My ethnic background is mixed, but I mostly identify as Pacific Islander and Native American. I continue to seek, learn and pass on the cultures and traditions of my ancestors.
I am very much an indigenous woman who is learning about what it means to be an indigenous human in this world. As a global citizen I care deeply about the impacts of climate change on all populations, particularly marginalized and "minority" populations. One of my main concerns is the impact of climate change on Tribal communities and the cultures/traditions of them.
As such I am on a life journey to become someone who can be used as an audible voice and an asset to the ocean of voices ignored or overlooked. I believe that progress could be made in light of environmental issues and conservation through the cultural and traditional preservation and restoration of indigenous communities.
