Quannah Chasinghorse-Potts of Fairbanks is featured on the cover of the July Issue of National Geographic which will focus on Native sovereignty.
“Quannah has been using her new platform to advocate and raise awareness for Indigenous rights, including the protection of our lands and ways of life. We are so proud to see Alaska Native representation at this level,” Tanana Chiefs wrote.
The Alaskan model and environmental activist burst onto the modeling scene with a runway appearance at Fashion Week in Paris and on the cover of Vogue Mexico. She was also featured on the cover of Elle magazine, which printed a feature on the first Indigenous woman to walk for certain luxury brands.
