Celebrating Alaska's Indigenous People

We are dedicating October and November to honoring Alaska Native people, cultures and knowledge.

Our goal is to make language revitalization a daily, long-term movement as a preservation of Indigenous cultures and wellbeing.  Speaking different languages and dialects have many positive effects for the survival of Alaska Native cultures and traditions. 

October Challenge:  30 days of language revitalization activity.

WORD OF THE DAY
Say it in your language

  • Day 1:  “Hello!”
  • Day 2:  “Grandparent(s)”
  • Day 3:  “Favorite Food”
  • Day 4:  “Favorite place on the land”
  • Day 5:  “Where is your family from?”
  • Day 6:  “Thank You!”
  • Day 7:  “What is the indigenous name for your village?”
