George Ramos

George Ramos is of the Yéil (Raven) moiety and the L”uknax.ádi (Coho) clan, and is a speaker of Lingít, the Tlingit language. He was born and raised in Yakutat, where he currently resides. Mr. Ramos is a life member of the Alaska Native Brotherhood and a member of the Alaska Sea Otter and Stellar Sea Lion Commission. He was trained in Tlingit traditions, ceremonies and subsistence skills by his maternal uncle. His knowledge inspired the Arctic Studies Center’s Yakutat Seal Camp project that will run from 2011-2015, where he also serves as an advisor. [Last updated in 2013]
