My name is Christian Sacksteder.  I am from Bellingham and am a mix breed of Irish, Native Alaskan and Lummi.  My culture is to be more open with how I feel, To help more than just my family who is in the same predicament I am in, homeless, in the struggle, Though I also have my own beliefs in the creator and the medicine hoop, I also believe in other religions.
