Namgyal Tsepak, Research Fellow

Namgyal Tsepak, a member of the NACH team, was interviewed on his experience working with Seva. A native of Tibet, he grew up as a nomadic yak herder, and identifies first-hand with development realities among indigenous communities in the U.S. and around the world. He arrived at Seva headquarters in Berkeley, California last July and  has traveled to Alaska, South Dakota, and locally in the Oakland Native American community as a Seva associate.  He came to Seva via the Hart Fellows Program of Duke University, where he graduated last year with a degree in Cultural Anthropology. His interview offers a unique view of the Seva program and provides great insight into the happenings within the NACH community.
