PEACE Love & Hair Grease Everyone,

I am MoHagani Magnetek (pronounced mahogany like the tree, magnetek as in magnetically). My pronouns are she/her/they/them. I am a first year PhD student in Cultural Anthropology. I just moved up here to Fairbanks on Wednesday from Anchorage. Yesterday was my 47th birthday. I am also a newlywed to my high school sweetheart. As it relates to this course, I’m here because it was suggested by advisor to take the museum studies course simultaneously while working in the archaeology lab at the Museum of the North this semester. Furthermore, I am an artistic curator for Black Alaskan Arts Matter (BAAM) thus I’m here to learn more in my effort to continue my work to share the arts of African American Alaskan throughout the state and the world. Amongst other things, I’m a writer, poet, playwright and martial artists. Anyhow, I am looking forward to learning and growing with you all over the course this semester and throughout our academic careers.

    Welcome to our class MoHagani and happy belated birthday! I hope this course provides you more context for the work you’ll be doing in the archaeology lab at UAMN. I look forward to hearing your perspectives as an artist as well!
