Roy Peratrovich Jr. is the elder son of the late Roy and Elizabeth Peratrovich, who were well known Tlingit Indian civil rights leaders in Alaska.  The State of Alaska has designated February 16 as Elizabeth Peratrovich Day in honor of her work toward anti-discrimination.  Roy was born in 1934 in Klawock, Alaska and attended schools in Klawock and Juneau.  He graduated from South High School in Denver, Colorado.  Roy earned his BSCE degree from the University of Washington in 1957, where his fraternity was Tau Kappa Epsilon.  He is a member of the Raven Clan of the Tlingit Tribe of Southeast Alaska.

In 1962, Roy became the first Alaska Native to be registered as professional civil engineer.  He worked as a bridge designer for the City of Seattle and the State of Alaska, then as a structural engineer in the private sector.  In 1979, he co-founded Peratrovich, Nottingham & Drage, Inc., a nationally recognized engineering firm with offices in Anchorage, Juneau and Seattle.  In 1999 Roy retired from PN&D and turned full time to his life long love of creating art, a natural talent that had been put on hold for many years.  Often drawing on tribal legends, he loves telling a story through his art. Although he also works in other media, sculpture is his favorite form of expression.
