"It was like feast and famine," distinguished artist George Blake (Hupa-Yurok) tells Wendy Butler on Artwaves. His early years weren't easy, but today Blake will receive an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters, to be conferred by the California State University and Humboldt State University.

Blake was nominated for his role in the resurgence of Native California traditional cultural life since the 1970s.
