Inky Lines

The Cook Inlet Tribal Council commissioned the design of an interactive tool for its youth. The Inky Lines website connects a new generation to 10,000 years of innovation. This future history is set in 2040 to inspire the Indigenous youth of today.

“In 2018, Inky Lines was born – a group of Alaska Native youths, who wanted to live in a future that was created, not dictated.

We started by dreaming big.

Really big.

Then, bit by bit, little by little, we began to build the future together.”
