Mary Frederick is Yup'ik from Akiachak, Alaska. In the mid-2000s, she was the Yupiit Elitnaurutait Local Cultural Coordinator in Akiachak for the Yupiit School District. She worked with Yupiit School District Curriculum Specialist Sophie Kasayulie and Frank Chingliak, District Cultural Specialist and Archivist/Translator, and staff from the Oral History Programs at the University of Alaska Fairbanks to produce the Akiachak Project Jukebox website. Mary organized focus group meetings in Akiachak with elders and other community members, and was instrumental in compiling a list of topics of community interest for this project. She contacted selected community members to schedule requested interviews in Akiachak during October 2005 and March 2006, and also participated in some of the interviews herself. Mary is married to Moses Frederick and together they have raised six children.
