Kody Vanderpool

Beaver, Alaska

    My parents are William Vanderpool and Birdie Billy of Beaver. My grandparents are Nora Billy of Beaver and Eli-Bernice Aargon of Tanana.

    I am 11 years old. My favorite thing about living in my village is my subsistence lifestyle. I love hunting for geese, ducks and moose. In the winter I love to trap.

    My grandmother Nora Billy taught me how to work with diamond willows. I first started two years ago and I really enjoy doing things with my hands. When I grow up I’d like to be a pilot mechanic and a carpenter.
