Model Martin Sensmeier Hearts Moose. Plus: Moose Heart

Actor, model, and youth advocate Martin Sensmeier has made a couple of cameo appearances at ICTMN, as the visuals for two recent Gyasi Ross columns ("Using Tradition to Teach Our Kids Purpose"and "The Redskins Issue"), but he has bigger gigs going than that. The native (and Native, Tlingit and Koyukon-Athabascan) of Yakutat, Alaska, who not too many years ago was working oil rigs in below-freezing temperatures, gave ICTMN an update on his life and work.

What are you up to at the moment?

I'm at home right now in Yakutat, Alaska, hunting moose — which has been successful! We got one the other day, but I'll be headed back south in a few days to get back to the grind.

Right — when you're done with moose, what's next?

I'm going to be filming two short films in the next few weeks, one of which is a SAG film, and also i'll be in Los Angeles for some modeling meetings with the top agencies out there. As of now, I'm represented by BENZ Models. I recently had a successful trip to NYC, where I had the privileged opportunity to shoot with Tarrice Love (loveismyrealname.blogspot.com), who is one of the very best photographers in the industry in the world of NYC modeling. I am thankful to have been given these opportunities, and to have great people behind me, helping me succeed in my pursuits.

You've been working with Native communities as well — can you tell us about that?

I also have a youth conference coming up that i'll be participating in as a member of Native Wellness Institute. They have a facebook group as well. We do work in the name of well-being for our native people throughout the US and Canada.
