Martha Binkley

Martha Nikolai Ross Binkley, also known as Shortcake or Sweetpea, is a Yupik Eskimo who grew up in the “Boon-toolies” between Talkeetna and Willow. She grew up in a teepee, and hunted, trapped and lived off the land. She now lives in Anchorage where she is in mental health and substance use recovery – a happy and grateful sober woman for six months! This is work during recovery.
