Hi I'm Elijah Ikaika

I am half Mohawk Native American. I'm a dancer of traditional Native American, Polynesian, and Latin dances. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play Lacrosse, I collect foreign and domestic currency, I love music and I play multiple instruments including the following: Piano, guitar, harmonica, ukelele, and most percussion instruments.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by my parents who were members, therefore I was brought up in Church and was from a very young age taught about the Bible and the Book of Mormon and of God's love for us. However, it was my choice to become converted to the gospel of Christ and to continue living by His teachings. I have had experiences in my life that have testified of the truthfulness of this gospel and this Church that are very dear to me. I know that this is Christ's true Church and that He lives and guides his Prophets today. I cannot deny that I know it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith today by trying to emulate what the Savior would do in every situation. I'm attending BYU and try to share the gospel through little interactions I have with my friends, family, and acquaintances. I like to share the gospel through music and dance as well.
