Since 1982, Odin has devoted many hours to cultural education for Native students and the general public. Today he collaborates with his partner, Ann, on Keet Shu-ka: An Indigenous Tribute to Killer Whales and other innovative programs blending First Nations culture, science, and art. Odin is a valued field assistant to the Vashon Hydrophone Project (VHP) for Puget Sound whale research, which Ann coordinates. The VHP collects data on Puget Sound’s endangered killer whales.

In the mid-1970s, the Juneau Centennial Committee, Juneau School District, Goldbelt Corporation, and Sealaska Corporation commissioned works by Odin for permanent display. In 1989, he attended the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Since 1974, Odin has won multiple awards in art shows throughout the Western US. In 2000, Native Peoples magazine featured furniture designs he created for Northwest Native Designs.
