Linda is the daughter of Antoinette and James Holverson. She’s Gwichyaa Gwich’in and from Fort Yukon Alaska. Her grandparents are Mary and the late Jimmy Fields.
In the words of Gwich’in elder Jonathon Solomon of Fort Yukon, Alaska, "It is our belief that the future of the Gwich’in and the future of the Caribou are the same. Harm to the Porcupine Caribou Herd is harm to the Gwich’in culture and millennia-old way of life."
