Demarus is devoted to defining environmental ethics and sustainable behavior through the Native American perspective. Much of her knowledge comes from growing up on the Alaskan tundra and among Native American communities across the continent. She earned her Environmental Studies degree from UW in 2015 and enjoys writing and forming relationships with community leaders. Demarus works as an environmental program liaison at Crown Bees, a mason and leafcutter bee company in Woodinville.
Demarus is also an avid fiber arts enthusiast who stubbornly learned how to knit from a book at the age of 13. Her lifelong love of knitting, weaving, spinning fiber into yarn, and sewing has been supported by an amazing network of teachers and masters of fiber arts. She loves to pick wild berries and traditional 'greens,' make jam, and learn.
