Suuqiina Forty years from the time he was taken from Alaska, Suuqiina, like Moses, returned to Alaska and reconnected to his native culture and his people. It was during this time that he became involved in reconciliation work and multiculturalism, teaching on protocol and the restoration of indigenous instruments and values for the purpose of worship and following Yeshua (Jesus). He also served on the Board of Directors of the Thirteenth Region Board of Directors an Alaska Native Corporation.

He traveled by snow machine to remote villages across Alaska to teach his people of the love of Messiah for them. He was instrumental in bringing the Inuit drum back into the hands of his people for the purposes of worship in Alaska.

As he traveled along the path of his culture being restored to him, he became connected with Grand Chief Lynda Prince, Richard Twiss, Terry LeBlanc, Randy Woodley, Jonathan Maracle, Deputy Grand Chief Kenny Blacksmith and other native leaders who were also teaching on redeeming culture for the purpose of following Christ. Along with these other leaders, Suuqiina, helped to bring the message of the need for repentance and reconciliation between Native Americans and the church.

It was also during this time that Suuqiina was privileged to cross paths with George Otis Jr., Chuck Pierce, and John Dawson who were also doing work on these same issues within the Christian community.
