I agree, David is totally unstable. He currently has several court cases open, and is in the CRP program for mentally unstable offenders. Whatever money he got from his fundraising endevours he has spent on hotels, drugs and liquor as you can tell from his horrible face book posts. But he keeps demanding people give him money. Very sad...this guy did sound smart at one point when he did his tedx talks, but because of mental illness and substance abuse he has stooped very low. It would be one thing if he admitted it and asked for help, but instead he is acting out like a spoiled brat. Hopefully no one else gives him money

David is such a hack, please be cautious because of his questionable business practices and his business partner, Andrey Khalkachan, is an illegal Russian that is out of compliance with Homeland Security. David also has a recent DV case against him from an elder in Palmer Court. David has a violent history, as you can read in the Alaska Court System public records. It appears this so-called 'non-profit- Qayaq Co-op' has lost massive steam since it's start-up, taking in an unknown amount of money from donors who fell for one of this character's many business scams. His resume' claims many questionable credits that are difficult to validate and due to his long, lengthy history of violence in Alaska, I find it difficult that many of these 'employers' hired him without looking into his violent and dangerous background. David cannot hold down a real job nor does he deserve the media's attention to fund-raise and steal more money thru his hack businesses nor as a consultant. Creepy!!!!!

Aang David. A very interesting interview.I too am Aleut, an Attu basket weaver. It is great to see Aleut culture expand in a new but old way.I like your comment on perfection of the traditional qayaq. I feel the same about the Attu syle basket. Good luck with all your endeavors. I'm sharing your interview on my Facebook page in which I have many Aleut folks a my friends. I'm sure they would be interested in your interview.
