Israel is a celebrated Tlingit artist and master carver, and Sue manages their businesses. Join us to hear how Sue and Israel fell in love, and how Israel’s mother’s passion for preserving the Tlingit language is a source of inspiration for them both. Sue and Israel share the stories behind Israel’s famous totem poles, why they love sharing cultural knowledge through art, and even perform some special songs for VoV listeners!
