Welcome to Aaka's Place

What is an "Aaka"?

It is your Mema, Grandma, or G-Ma. whatever you call her, she is special. Going to Aaka's Place was such a wonderful experience for me as a child. My Aaka is my inspiration for developing my small baked goods and soon to be coffee/food truck filled with Indigenous coffees, teas, & a bit of my cultures comfort foods. I hope you enjoy my qaqqiamiks (Iñupiat doughnuts) as much as I do.
