Keynote Speakers

Samuel Johns


Samuel Johns (AK REBEL) is a community activist, motivational speaker and hip hop artist.
Using hip hop as a tool to create awareness for some of the issues that Alaskans face, he got the opportunity to premier his music video “Wake Up”, (a song about Domestic Violence) at the 14′ Quayana Night.
Since the beginning of 2015 he has traveled to many communities around Alaska to speak to the youth about living a drug and alcohol free lifestyle.
On June 10th, 2015 he created a Facebook Group called “Forget-Me-Not” to help reconnect the homeless community to their families that are living in rural Alaska.
His goal is to show the youth how to grieve in a healthy way so that they to can be a positive impact to their community.
