Doug has served the Board of Directors since 2006. He is the youngest son to the traditional Chief Costia Inga of the village of Old Harbor. Doug is a retired commercial fisherman and now is an Alaskan Native Artisan and has been carving Suqpiaq art for many years. His culture is strongly depicted in his life and carvings. Today, much of his inspiration comes from books illustrating Suqpiaq art and artifacts. He hopes to perpetuate Suqpiaq culture through his artwork. Doug has been recognized as a Master Artist at the Alaska Native Heritage Center.
Doug helped at Nuniuq Camp, a remote camp for Old Harbor students that promotes the Suqpiaq culture, subsistence practices, and promotes and encourages healthy lifestyles. At the camp he worked with students teaching them traditional native art.
He also volunteers for SouthCentral Foundation as councilor for faith based healing. He travels throughout Alaska to help fellow Alaska Natives to a path of healing.
