Anchorage resident and Koahnic staffperson Angela Jenkins attended Cama-i Dance Festival for the first time this past weekend.  Jenkins is originally from Emmonak, and says going to the festival was amazing.  She's part of a new generation that is staying connected to traditional culture where ever they go, and is passing on those values to her daughter.
