What is your Story?

Yaaruin Consulting offers strategic communications, branding strategy, social media management, and photography services to businesses.

Our name, "Yaaruin," pronounced yuh-ghoo-en, is derived from the Yup'ik language and translates to "story knife." The story knife is a traditional tool used in storytelling by the Yup'ik people.

Yaaruin reflects our commitment to crafting compelling narratives that resonate with our clients' audiences. Additionally, it brings to the forefront our respect for Indigenous cultures and traditions, and our commitment to working in ways that honor and incorporate diverse perspectives and values.

Our name demonstrates our commitment to the power of storytelling and the importance of incorporating Indigenous perspectives and values in our work.
