Angela Jenkins

Abalone Ambassador

Angela Benedict Jenkins is the daughter of Josephine Benedict from Emmonak, AK and Dario Notti from Nulato, AK. Angela was raised in Emmonak by her maternal grandparents Elizabeth Benedict and Cornelius Benedict Sr. Angela is the Resource Development and Marketing Specialist for Rising Indigenous Voices Radio (RIVR), a free online native radio stream (the_rivr.net). Angela believes she is who she is today because her grandparents raised her speaking her indigenous language, they raised her at fish camp and they always reminded her that she is a representation of herself, her family and her community. With the knowledge gifted from her grandparents, Angela raised two daughters, Addison Akelleq Martin and Bailey Ixhkee Dáxh Rooney.
