Susan (Sue) Ramsey has long been interested in her Tlingit culture and has earned degrees in American Indian studies. She is among the youngest of the culture bearers interviewed for this study but very spiritually connected to her cultural heritage. She is of the Nanya ayii Clan, but is Kiks.adi yadi, meaning her father was Kiks.adi. Sue feels a deep connection with both of these clans, and she works hard to support the Kiks.adi in their efforts.
