One Who Speaks (Iñupiaq)

In March 2014, I presented to the Northwest Arctic Borough Assembly in Kotzebue. During a break assembly members Verne Cleveland (Noorvik) and Clyde Ramoth (Selawik) called me over and said they wanted to give me an Inupiaq name Uqaqti which means \"One Who Speaks.\" This name describes what we do - we communicate on behalf of our clients. Also, leadership from another region gave it to me, which signifies building bridges across our diverse state. I am proud and honored to rename my business Uqaqti Consulting.
