Tristan Agnauraq Morgan joined the Foundation in September 2019 as a Momentum Program Fellow. The program is a partnership between Philanthropy Northwest and Rasmuson Foundation to prepare individuals from underrepresented communities for careers in philanthropy with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. She grew up in Anchorage and attended University of Alaska Anchorage where she studied art and professional writing. While in college, Tristan interned with ASRC Energy Services, a subsidiary of Arctic Slope Regional Corp., working in a number of departments including quality assurance, legal, proposals and human resources recruiting. She also volunteered in her community. After graduating in December 2017, Tristan began her career as a human resources coordinator with Denali Family Services, where she also helped organize art and indigenous youth events with the direct service staff working with children and adolescents.

Outside of work, Tristan continues her art practice and participates in community art events. She advocates for and collaborates with local and indigenous artists and entities focusing on identity, representation and Iñupiaq values in her mediums of watercolor and oil painting. She was featured in “Who We Are,” a short film by Alexis Anoruk Sallee that connects her ancestral lands and art. Tristan’s second day on the job, the film was announced as the winner of the national “She Directed” contest.
